It is best served in the first two days, as the mixture breaks down a bit more with each day.
Can I Make Bunny Tail Ambrosia Ahead of Time
You can make this salad a bit in advance. Feel free to whip it up the night before so it is chilled and ready to serve the next day.
If you go this route you can also leave the marshmallows out and then right before you serve stir them in. This will keep their texture a bit better.

If you are feeding a crowd, consider buying single serve cups and spooning the salad into cups for serving. This is great for your guests to grab a cup and go, vs scooping on their plate.
We do this when we have a lot of people over, it makes it more portable too for them to eat out of the small cup instead of needing a dessert plate.
