"Made this for the fourth, it was a big hit. Thank's for the recipe. LeeAnn Treacher Elkhart,In"

"Too much liquid for the amount of ingredients. Second time I made it, I eliminated the pina colada mix and orange juice. I did add an apple, banana, cantaloupe and sprinkled lime juice over the salad with a sprinkle of kosher salt. It worked for us. Next day the juices from the fruit came out and was just as good. The lime juice helped the apples and bananas from turning brown. I guess it's a completely different recipe."

"I thought this was a bit too sweet and the Pina Colada tasted fake. Since it was so sweet already I didn't add the extra sugar. My guests enjoyed it though. Maybe it is better when it sets as I see someone said in their review."

"Great recipe! I made one change to the recipe. Instead of buying a Pina Colada drink mix, I used 1 c. of pineapple juice combined with 1 c. of Cream of coconut. Not only was it a little healthier, I think it tastes just as good."

"What a great fruit salad! All you need to do is buy a bunch of fruit, add a few extras and mix it all together. I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but still loved this. It was a big hit with the family."

MY REVIEW

"Followed the advice of everyone and left out the sugar and poured the dressing over the fruit before serving. It was the first thing my dinner guests commented on. They LOVED it and so did we. Definitely a keeper."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2012

"This is a very tasty salad! I took the sweet-meter one step higher by mixing the dressing with a box of instant vanilla pudding. Wow! Sweet? yes...delicious? yes. I didn't add the sugar and put about a quarter of the dressing on the salad (as other reviewers suggested). The pudding I served as a "topping". The salad was great and the topping was a yummy experiment.

I only gave it 4 stars because, inexplicately, none of the kids liked the salad. Crazy kids!"

"My daughter's idea: mix the dressing and serve on the side allowing guests touse as they desire. Works great and keeps the fruit from getting soft."

"Delicious! Washed the fruit and made the dressing well in advance (left out 1/2 c sugar), chilled all in the fridge. 10 min before serving I mixed it together, adding toasted flaked coconut and fresh minced mint, chilled again until we ate. Next time would only make 1/2 the dressing as there is plenty. We loved this salad and so did our friends! Keeper!"

"Wow! What wonderful flavor. I made this for a summer party. I enjoyed sitting back and watching people put it into their mouths the first time. They had this strange looks, like "wow, what is on this fruit?!" Everyone loved it! I can't stay out of it. I hope my husband gets rid of the juice before I hold the bowl up to my mouth and drink it!"

MY REVIEW

"The flavor of this fruit salad is refreshingly different. If I make it again, I will add only about 1/2 of the can of pina colada mix and will probably not add any additional sugar. The leftover mix went down the drain since the fruit was completely drenched in the liquid and, swimming in all of the extraneous juices, did not look very appetizing to my family."

"I've also made this twice for Pot Lucks and it had great reviews. I also used just the Pina Colada with no sugar or additional juices. Right before serving I poured off excess dressing so it doesn't sit in bottom of bowl. I didn't add the pineapple until shortly before serving; when left overnight it took on the red color from berries, did anyone else have that problem?"

"What a great refreshing salad, I have made this twice already.

JO4-the green "chips" as you call it -seen in the picture is no doubt chiffonaded mint. That is rolled up leaves of the mint that is sliced thin and added often to salads, drinks or as a simple garnish."

I am pretty sure the little green things are chopped mint.  Being part Lebanese we use mint in a salad called Tabouli and I have added chopped mint to fruit before and it adds a nice flavor to it, but use fresh mint."

I made - instead of buying pineapple/orange juice (for 1/2 cup), I mixed some of the canned pineapple juice (from the pineapple called for) with orange juice to total 1/2 cup. Worked fine."

I also only used about a 1&1/3 cup of coating, which was plenty and I'd even use less next time. The raspberries got a little soggy, but still tasted great. It was gone from a group of 6 people at a dinner get-together and was an easy treat to bring. :)"

"Any summer fruit will work in this yummy fruit salad. Since coconut is not a favorite flavor in my home, I substituted the pina colada concentrate with pinapple-strawberry concentrate, and used regular oragnge juice rather than pinappe-orange. I eliminated the coconut extract, sticking with the almond extract alone. As other members suggested, I left out the 1/2 cup sugar. Because it's easy, light, and delicious, I've used this dish for picnics, pot lucks, and as a side dish for an all inclusive entree, like chicken pot pie."
