LOVED this recipie. Quadrupled it for a party with 50 guests and it ALL went. The coconut was very refreshing. I couldn't find the star fruit anywhere, so I used mango and papaya and added in some strawberries as well. As for the dressing, I used 6-8 tablespoons of lime juice with only 1-2 tablespoons of honey. Will definately make again.
