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

Coconut Fruit Salad

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

This fruit salad has a hint of lemon taste to it that’s so refreshing.

The lemon juice is added not only to give the salad a fresh taste, but also to lightly coat the pieces of apple and banana so they keep their original color.

I was at a lunch recently that was catered and in a large serving dish there was a fruit salad topped with coconut which really caught my eye.

And I actually added it to my plate before anything else.

It was delicious especially with the coconut topping.

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

About Serving

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