I left out the bananas and mangoes as I didn't have any and liked the toasted coconut in this the second day after it had picked up some juice and become a bit moist. So if I make this again I would add the coconut on top prior to serving time.

Delicious salad. I made as directed, but halved the recipe, using fresh pineapple and sweetened coconut. I did toss the banana in extra lime juice prior to mixing to ensure it didn't turn brown (but I'm a little paranoid about that :) ). Thanks for posting!

Absolutely delicious! We had this with grilled chicken and Cajun Sweet Potatoes recipe#136014 for a wonderful end-of-summer supper! Thanks for sharing!
