Tired of serving the same old potato salad or coleslaw at every outdoor meal?  How about changing things up with a tropical-flavored fruit salad? Meg created this crunchy, beautiful salad for our book, The Everything Guide to Cooking for Children with Autism (Adams Media, 2009).  Bring this colorful dish along to your next potluck barbecue!

Please check out our post on our coconut policy  if you have concerns about serving coconut to folks with food allergies.

We shared this recipe with Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays , Wellness Weekend and Allergy Friendly Fridays; please check out the other great posts.
