Orange Pineapple Ambrosia Salad
Franmendez says:

We made the ambrosia with sugar free cool whip instead of sour cream. How much does this change the nutritional values? Dietitian comment: Cool Whip is lower in calories, sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Since the amount is only 1/4 cup sour cream if you substituted the same amount of Cool Whip, per serving there's 14 fewer mg potassium and 9 mg less phosphorus and 2 mg less sodium. Cool Whip does contain phosphate additives, and some brands of sour cream may as well--check ingredients. There's a frozen dessert topping called Tru-Whip that does not have phosphates if it is available at your grocery store.

Very good! I have been eating this for years as 5 cup salad which calls for 1 cup of each ingredient, but does not call for cherries. This kidney friendly version is just as good! I would recommend making it 1 day ahead like the recipe says, because it was much better the second day.(We ate the first serving immediately after preparing). I didn't have the cherries, and it was very good without them, but I will try to keep some on hand for the next time...

I have been advised by my kidney specialist not to eat nuts or coconut would this be okay for me to eat I also have high potassium I am a CKD Moderator comment: Because this recipe has only 2 tablespoons of coconut, it is low enough in potassium to include as long as you carefully measure ingredients and the recommended portion. You could also make it without the coconut.
