Pina Colada Fruit Salad June 30, 2013

This salad is perfect for the holiday weekend coming up.  You can make it so anyone can eat it or you can add a little adult things to it 🙂  Either way it is delicious!  IF you are not a fan of coconut or pina colada flavor I have also made it using a moijto or Margarita juice mix.

Salad

1-1/2 cups green grapes1-1/2 cups seedless red grapes1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1-1/2 cups halved fresh strawberries1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1 can (10 ounces) frozen non-alcoholic pina colada mix, thawed
1/2 cup sugar ( I used less)1/2 cup pineapple-orange juice1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon coconut extract

In a serving bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the pina colada mix, sugar, juice and extracts until sugar is dissolved. Pour over fruit; toss to coat. Chill until serving.  The longer you can let it sit the more flavor the salad will have, however be careful not to let really ripe fruit sit in all the mixture for too long or the fruit becomes soggy.

NOTE:  Yes, you can use some coconut rum in place of extract if adults will be the only ones eating the salad 🙂
