Hawaiian Fruit Salad Recipe!

Here is another recipe I had to share from my daughter's Hawaiian Dinner Party.  This was SUCH a wonderful fruit salad and so fun presented in the pineapple shell.  If you love coconut and fresh fruit, you are going to love this!


Hawaiian Fruit Salad

1 whole fresh pineapple
1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
1 1/2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
1 1/2 cups green grapes, halved
1 1/4 cups vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup flaked coconut, toasted, divided 
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or coconut extract

Directions:

  • Stand the pineapple upright and vertically cut a third from one side, leaving the leaves attached.  Using a paring knife, remove strips of pineapple from large section, leaving a 1/2 inch shell; discard core.  Cut strips into bite sized chunks.  Invert shell onto paper towels to drain.
  • Remove fruit from the small pineapple piece and cut into chunks; discard peel.  Place shell in a serving basket or bowl.  
  • In another bowl, combine the pineapple chunks, oranges, strawberries and grapes.  Combine the yogurt, 1/4 cup coconut and the extract; spoon over fruit and stir gently.  Spoon into pineapple shell.  Sprinkle with remaining coconut.  Yield: 6 servings
