Coconut Tropics Salad

Over the next couple of months, you'll see quite a few salads, both savory and sweet. Here's another, with toasted coconut and fruits that you probably already have in your produce drawer.

Coconut Tropics Salad
*8 servings*
1/2 cup sweetened coconut
2 red apples
1 green apple
1 lime
1 pear
1 banana
1 mango
2 navel oranges
1/4 cup sliced toasted almonds (optional)

Sprinkle coconut and almonds on a small baking sheet and put in oven or toaster at 300 degrees F for 7 minutes.
Get out a large bowl. Chop the apples into small bites and toss into bowl. Squeeze half of lime over apples and toss, to prevent browning later.
Next, chop pears and bananas. Toss into bowl with juice of other half of lime. Toss gently.
Then chop mango and oranges, as well as any other fruits you have on hand. Gently toss with other fruits and top with toasted coconut and almonds. 

Have a wonderful weekend!
