This is an awesome item to serve at a summer dinner party or tropical themed party. I whipped up this salad for the annual Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville Party. Sweet to the taste and very refreshing. The presentation will sure to get comments from your guests. Very quick to make and can be prepared in advance allowing you plenty of time. Top of with a salty bread and your favorite frozen concoction for a full meal deal.
