Like appetizers, dessert is a recent addition to the traditional West African table. Often ripe fruit--or a combination like this--serves as dessert.

How to Make It

Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, tossing gently to combine. Cover and chill 1 hour. Sprinkle with coconut.

I've made this several times and love it--as does the rest of my family. And yes, using canned fruit will make a huge difference. Use fresh.

It is very important to use fresh fruit. Yes, there will be a big difference in the taste when you use canned pineapple. Fresh pineapple is sweet and juicy, canned has no taste. If you don't follow the recipe, you shouldn't rate it. This is a very tasty fruit salad!

I made this for a family BBQ and wasn't impressed. I used canned pineapple instead of fresh, but that shouldn't have made to much of a difference. The banana overpowered everything and made it all taste like banana.
