Fruit Salad Recipe (with Baby Shrimps and Toasted Coconut)

I am back to the normal posting cycle and most importantly, the comfort of my home.

Let’s just say that I am just very happy to be home, so much so that I was practically lying there on my bed and couch for the whole weekend–doing nothing and consuming only Indomie instant noodles but still feeling utterly happy. Happiness lies in the fact that I can just relax and sleep on my own bed, under my own roof, and be with my LK…it’s a bliss.

Anyway, I am also glad that I didn’t have to make something just for the sake of creating new content for my blog; I have quite a few recipes saved in my draft–dishes that I’d made prior to my recent trips but haven’t had a chance to post, for example, this luscious looking tropical fruit salad

If you recall, I made some jerk chicken skewers with mandarin oranges salsa, so this fruit salad was the leftover result of that post. I tossed in baby shrimps, a mango, topped the fruit salad with toasted coconut and got a healthy and light meal. This is especially refreshing for those in Southern California now because of the heat wave, so here is the recipe to share with you.

    i could eat this for dinner every night in the summertime.

    well, at last on those night’s when we’re not grilling.

    yum!

    A weekend of Indomie and couch time doesn’t sound so bad :) Your salad looks delicious and as it’s been hot, I’ve been looking for any recipes that don’t require an oven or stove.

    I wish I were in Southern California…We’re barely getting Spring weather yet! Regardless, this salad sounds so delicious. I think I’ll make it, close my eyes and let the flavors trick me into thinking it’s warm.

    Usually, after I get back to US from Asia, I just want to sleep and do nothing. If someone were to prepare a fruit salad like that for me, I do not mind eating, then get forward being a couch potato and Zzzzz again. :P

    I don’t know what it is about shrimp that pairs it off tropical fruits so well, but you pulled it off excellently here! Nice salad bee! :)

    sounds nice to be back home eh?
    after all the excitement it’s nicest to just do nothing and sleep!

    yesterday was Labour Day, i was just lazing at home, doing nothing at all! LOL

    Toasted grated coconut is new to me. The combination of oranges and shrimps seems like a perfect combination.

    This fruit salad with baby shrimp and toasted coconut looks amazing! I will try to make it using your fruit salad with baby shrimp and toasted coconut recipe.
