Comments

This is a great fruit salad!  The cherries and flaked coconut make it different from traditional fruit salads I'm accustomed to. Kids love it too! It's a great recipe to have kids help you make, especially if you use a cherry pitter! You can give smaller children a plastic knife to cut up the banana and maybe even the grapes, too.
