Creamy Fruit Salad with Coconut Poppy Seed Dressing
Creamy Fruit Salad with Coconut Dressing ~ it's grandma's potluck classic spiffed up and brought into the 21st century with a vegan coconut lime dressing, and trust me, you won't miss the marshmallows, the mayo, or the Cool Whip one bit!
1can full fat coconut milkyou can also use coconut cream which is thicker and richer
juice of 1 limeif your lime is very dry you might need more
1Tbspsugar or honeyor to taste
In a large mixing bowl combine all the fruit.
If you are using coconut milk open the can and carefully drain off 1/4 cup of the clear liquid. Put the remaining coconut milk in a small bowl with the sugar, poppy seeds, and lime juice. Blend well with an immersion blender. You can also use a whisk, but I like the texture you get from blending. Take a taste. You may want to add more lime, or adjust the sweetener.
If you are using coconut cream measure out about 2/3 cup and proceed as above.
Gently toss the salad with plenty of dressing and serve asap.
