A simple dressing made with flavored yogurt coats this refreshing combination of fresh and canned fruit. It looks spectacular when presented in a pineapple boat and sprinkled with toasted coconut.

"I wanted a fruit salad for Easter and this one had excellent reviews plus looked so beauriful in the pineapple.....I decided it was The One! Personally, I thought it was AWFUL. Fruit is not inexpensive and I ended up throwing almost the entire thing in the garbage! SO DISAPPOINTED! (I made the salad exactly as given, using the pina colada yogurt. Only thing I did different was omit the coconut)"

"Very very yummy and looks so pretty in the pineapple, Hard for me to find pina colada flavored yogurt so just used french vanilla and it was still delicious! Does not take very much time at all to carve the pineapple and put it together. I cant wait to make it again."
