If your family likes things really sweet, you may wish to add a little Splenda, sugar or other sweetner before refrigerating the ambrosia, but I tought it was sweet enough without it.
If serving this as a dessert instead of a salad or side dish, you may wish to top with Cool Whip Free or light whipped cream and/or chopped nuts if desired, but I found this delicious enough with out the added fat & calories!
