Pineapple, Coconut, Mango Salad With 'Yogurt' And Mint

Ten years ago, the thought of mixing fresh mint with fruit would not have appealed to me.  Today, this minty fruit salad is one of my favorites.  It is such a refreshing treat on a summer day, and I love that it isn't a fruit salad that anyone would expect.

1 pineapple, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 mangos, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup Flaked coconut (I like to use the sweetened coconut.  It is just the right amount of sweetness to go with the tartness of the pineapple and mango)
1 6 oz container PLAIN So Delicious Cultured Coconut Milk (If you get another type of Plain 'Yogurt', you may want to add some pure maple syrup or honey to sweeten it.  The cultured coconut milk is already a little sweet)
4 mint leaves

1.  In a large bowl, mix pineapple and mango.
2.  Mince the mint leaves.
3.  Top the fruit with coconut flakes and mint.
4.  Drizzle the Cultured Coconut Milk over the top.

This looks delicious. I love mangos in anything and the mint would be a very interesting combination.I have never had cultured coconut milk and would really like to try it. I made your Creamy Basil and Balsamic Temeph Salad Sandwich today and both my husband and I loved it!! Great recipe:) Thank you.
