Expert Tips

  • Avocados are loaded with vitamin B6, a nutrient necessary for proper nerve and immune function.
  • To toast coconut, spread evenly in an ungreased shallow pan and bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • To toast nuts, spread in an ungreased shallow pan and bake in a 350°F oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • Serve this salad with flair! Spoon individual portions into coconut shells or hollowed-out pineapple shells that have been cut into fourths.
