This is a delicious salad. DH absolutely loved it and asked me to make it again soon. I served it for dessert.

  1. Peel, core and cube the pineapple, and place in a serving bowl. Reserving the liquid, drain and chop the guavas. Toss the guavas into the serving bowl with one of the bananas and the mango.
  2. Chop the preserved ginger and add to the pineapple mixture.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons of the ginger syrup, and the reserved guava syrup into a blender or food processor and add the other banana, the coconut milk and the sugar. Blend to form a smooth creamy puree.
  4. Pour the banana and coconut mixture over the fruit, add a little grated nutmeg and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Serve chilled, decorated with strips of coconut.
