Who would think buttermilk could turn into this? I served it as a dessert rather than a salad. We enjoyed the fruit and nuts combination. I am very glad I made this recipe!

This was delicious - like a trip to the tropics for your mouth ! I loved the orange, pineapple, coconut combination, and I did use the nuts cause I just love them - the buttermilk added just the right amount of creaminess! I served in individual dessert flutes with a dollop of whipped cream on top. This is a great summer-time dessert and I'm glad I found it. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

This is a great salad loof. My dh was over the moon. He loved it and kept raving about how great it was. The salad was sweet, tart and tangy, thick, smooth, velvety and silky. I enjoyed the combo of coconut and buttermilk in this dish. I did leave out the nuts as dh is allergic and I made this for him. Thank you so much for sharing this flavorful treat.
