This Pina Colada Fruit Salad is the perfect taste of summer! Made with just 5 ingredients and ready in 10 minutes, this salad is ideal for summer picnics, parties, or lazy days by the pool!
You know how some people spend their entire summer at the pool? And eat their lunch there, and play with friends there, and basically live there from June through August? Well. That couldn’t be further from my reality. In fact, it’s July 18, and I have yet to spend one summer day at a pool. And I’m totally okay with that.
I can guarantee my kids are not. But then again, they’re not the ones in charge of 4 kids by a pool! I’m a nervous wreck! And as fun as it might be for them….I’d be hard pressed to say it feels worth worth it to me. Jorden, on the other hand? He’s as cool as a cucumber. As my kids would tell me, I am not the fun one.
What I could get behind? Hanging out near the pool while Jorden is in the pool with the kids. Sipping on a pina colada…or maybe munching on this Pina Colada Fruit Salad…the next best thing! I don’t think that’s too much to ask, do you??
I know for a fact that my family is in love with this salad….because, well, how could they not be!? Pina Coladas are pretty much amazing, and this Pina Colada Fruit Salad has all the same flavors. Made with fresh pineapple, toasted coconut, and a creamy honey lime dressing, this Pina Colada Fruit Salad is delicious enough to satisfy any pineapple lover’s sweet tooth. And best of all….it’s actually healthy(ish)! Which makes it extra perfect for poolside, or picnics, or really any summertime activity. And even though I’d love to say you don’t have to share, the reality is that once your family and friends get a glimpse of it, this Pina Colada Fruit Salad won’t last long. So be prepared!
