I really like this salad and have made it numerous times. It makes me feel like I'm on a tropical island! For even more coconut taste you can substitute pina colada yogurt. Other good choices would also be lemon or orange cream.

I made this for my club's picnic, and was asked for the recipe. It's so easy to make, and will definitely make it often.
Mar 22, 2008This was my first time making this salad. I used marishino cherries instead of grapes. The result was delicious! My two young sons keep asking for more. I will definitely make this again!
