Tropical Coconut Fruit Salad

This heavenly coconut fruit salad is made with tropical fruit (or a mixture of tropical and local fruit) tossed together in a sweet coconut-lime fruit salad dressing that enhances the luscious taste. Follow the recipe or choose your own combination of fruit for this easy fresh fruit salad.


3-4 sliced fresh pitted apricots (about 1 cup)
1 cup strawberries, sliced or cut into quarters
2 kiwi fruit peeled and sliced (about 1 cup)
1 cup fresh pineapple
1 banana, sliced
1 cup mango, cubed
(You can also add 1 cup other tropical fruit, such as dragon fruit, lychees, longans, or rambutans.)
Garnish: starfruit slices


Prepare the Dressing (see recipe below). Place all the fresh fruit in a mixing bowl. Pour Dressing over and toss well to mix. Pour or scoop the fruit salad into a serving bowl. Garnish just before serving with a star fruit slice.

Tropical Coconut Fruit Salad Dressing:

1/4 cup coconut milk
1 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed lime juice
1 Tbsp. honey
3 tablespoons flaked coconut


Stir dressing ingredients together in a cup until honey dissolves. Pour over fruit salad. (This also makes a nice salad dressing for other salads. Try tossing some on a grilled chicken, strawberries and spinach salad. Mmmm.)

YIELD: 1 large bowl of fruit salad
