I've made this fruit salad for two recent events and people have asked for the recipe at both, so it's a winner in my book. It's simple, healthy and yummy and you might want to try it this summer.
Fruit Salad with Coconut-Lime Dressing
1/2 cup shaved coconut (I used shredded)
2 cups cubed honeydew melon (I used cantaloup)
2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
1 cup fresh strawberry halves
1 cup fresh blueberries
1-8 oz container lemon yogurt
2 tablespoons cream of coconut
(from 16 oz can)
2 teaspoons grated lime peel
Toast coconut by baking at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Stir once and watch closely
Meanwhile combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and blend well.
Layer fruit in glass bowl. When ready to serve, pour dressing over fruit and top with toasted coconut.
The second time I made this I was short on time so I just purchased a fruit bowl from Costco and made the topping.
Here is Kansas the weather pendulum has swung from cool, rainy spring to oppressively hot and dry. It's a challenge keeping up with the watering but it is relaxing to wander around the yard with a watering can late in the day when the humidity is down. Hope you're enjoying your summer!
