This was a big hit at the party; everyone just loved it. Very easy to make; one suggestion, I prepared everything including the pineapple mixture a day before, then added everything together for approx. 6 hours; PERFECT! It wasn't as good the day after(a little soggy is all),(I was lucky enough to take some home) Great recipe, thanks very much.
My husband and I are on a raw foods fruit diet kind of thing, so I substituted Splenda for the sugar. Delicious. I bet making the dressing with other fruit juices would be just as good. Thanks for posting.
Yummy! My daughter-in-law made it for dinner tonight. She used the juice from the mandarin oranges instead of pineapple juice (just an error)but it still turned out very good.
