Crunchy Coconut-Berry Salad

Crunchy Coconut-Berry Salad

This salad takes a tropical turn with ingredients like jicama, coconut, and lime. Mint and honey give it a sweet freshness. Serve as you would any fruit salad. Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes. Notes: Unsweetened sliced dried coconut (also called flaked coconut or coconut chips) is sold in natural-foods stores. You can substitute sweetened shredded dried coconut if you like.
