Took this salad to a barbecue, I used the long 'thread' coconut and as I couldnt find a lemon yoghurt here in NZ, I used an orange and apricot flavoured one. It was really yummy...thanks =)

The recipe did not say to drain the juice from the pineapple and mandarin oranges and therefore it was very soupy!

Awesome simple recipe. I used sour cream and added cherries. We all loved it. Thanks for an easy recipe.

Same recipe I have used b4. I never used the lemon yogurt b4 and will try it next time. I always top this with cherry halves. It makes for a pretty presentation but don't put them on too soon or they may color the salad. Great for a Thanksgiving or Xmas dinner as it is refreshing like fruit when fruit isn't in season.

I added fruit cocktail as well and coloured mini marshmellows about 10 minutes before serving. I made this for a pot luck luncheon. Very tasty

I loved the creamy taste of this "fruit salad"!!! I also really liked the fact that all the ingredients are in equal proportions so I can make it in any quantity that I want... I made just half a recipe this time since I knew my BF would not even taste it... he didn't know what he was missing out on... I used sour crem and did add the marshmallows in along with all the other ingredients since I like them soft... Yummy!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

favorite of mine for years! I like it with sour cream and white marshmellows! My kids don't like coconut so now I just leave it out.

Made this with vanilla yogurt instead of the lemon (family not fans of lemon), and it was outstanding! Great job :)
