Coconut Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is definitely dressed to impress when topped with shredded coconut.

100--Coconut-fruit-salad

Shredded coconut really steps up the flavor and texture of a basic fruit salad.

This quick and easy fruit salad has a hint of lemon taste to it from lemon juice added to not only give the salad a fresh taste but also to lightly coat the pieces of apple and banana so they keep their color.

I was at a lunch recently that was catered and in a large serving dish there was a fruit salad that was topped with coconut which really caught my eye and I actually added it to my plate before anything else.

It must have caught the eye of others at the lunch too because the serving dish emptied out quickly.

This a great salad to bring to a pot-luck or make when having company over because it’s so pretty and colorful.
