      The tastes in this salad are good. But I thought the consistency of the creamy dressing became a bit too thin soon after it was combined with the fruit. I did not understand the fruit measurements. I used a full 3 oranges and 2 grapefruits even though that was way more than 1.5 cups of fruit. This recipe is not bad. I think everyone enjoyed it...I just recommend serving it very soon after it is made. And watch the coconut carefully so it does not burn.
