    This was very nice and refreshing. I really wasn't sure I'd like mayonnaise on the fruit and opted to go with a dollop of greek yoghurt instead, which worked just fine for us and the fruit!

    Except for using pre-shredded coconut, I pretty much stuck to the recipe, & both the mango & papaya were nicely ripe & flavorful! A great-tasting & refreshing salad, & I'll be keeping the recipe on hand for making again! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

    This was a little different from a salad I would usually make, but really wanted to try it. I enjoyed the fruit and textures, the mayo wasn't overpowering. I did add a touch of sugar as my mango and papaya weren't the sweetest. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2001-South Pacicic!
