I hope you are having a lovely day. I have a fantastic summer recipe for you. It is another version of our fruit salad. For the original recipe click the following link. https://lewissisters.wordpress.com/2016/10/01/fruit-salad/
A couple weeks ago, I made the original fruit salad, with strawberry yogurt and cheesecake pudding, for a barbecue my parents were attending; when an idea struck me for a tropical version of this dish. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to make the tropical version and the verdict is… The salad is fantastic; to add more coconut flavor garnish with some toasted coconut, or, crushed graham crackers (regular or gluten free).
Have fun adding your own fruit.
This salad is a hit at any summer barbecue. Give it a try!
