Pineapple Boat Fruit Salad

This is my version of a fruit salad that I had in Hawaii that was so tasty.

This recipe includes cottage cheese and granola as a topping.

I’ve also had this salad topped with sherbet ice cream and it’s delicious.

Another option is to top this fruit salad with your favorite yogurt.

I just happened to use fruit that was on sale when making this recipe so feel free to make changes if you like, and include your favorite fruit and berries. 

Let’s check out the ingredients.

For the Fruit Salad:

For the Topping:

Here’s how to make it.

Cut a whole pineapple in half lengthwise.

Using a knife about the size of a steak knife, make a cut around the perimeter of the fruit- side of the pineapple about 1/2 inch from the outside edge.

While cutting, carefully aim your knife at a diagonal towards the inside of the fruit.

When you are cutting around the top of the pineapple by the stalk, leave a slightly wider edge so that the stalk has support and does not fall forward.

Once you’re done cutting, the middle of the pineapple should lift out.

After the middle of the pineapple is removed, use the tip of your knife to carefully hollow out the pineapple so that the inside is in the shape of a bowl or a “boat”.

Then spoon out the excess pineapple and juice so that the “boat” is empty.

Cut the pineapple in fairly large chunks.  If the core is on the tough side, cut it off from the pieces of pineapple and discard.

Cut the watermelon in fairly large pieces.

Peel the kiwi fruit and cut it in large pieces.

Peel the mango and cut it up in large pieces.

Also, cut the banana in fairly large pieces.

Rinse the blueberries in a strainer.

Add the fruit and blueberries to a large plate so that you can mix up the fruit before adding it to the pineapple boat.

Squeeze the orange juice over the bananas.

Put the fruit into the pineapple boat.

Sprinkle the coconut over the fruit.

Add either the cottage cheese, sherbet ice cream, or yogurt to the top of the fruit.

Top with granola.

Enjoy!
