This fruit salad is different from other fruit salads because the dressing is raspberry vinaigrette. Something different and new for me to use, since I commonly associate vinaigrette to salads of leafy greens. But it is yummy and worth a try!

I really enjoyed this. That said, it looks kind of funny once you add the dressing. It kind of turns a purple colour. Who couldn't use a little more purple food in their diet though?!?! I omitted the nuts to lower the fat content. Didn't miss them at all! This is great for a quick lunch or two. I will make this again.

I made this for a family BBQ over father's day weekend. it is an easy salad to make and very tasty. I chose to serve the coconut and macademia nuts on the side. All around it was a very good salad.
