Summer’s Best Fruit Salad

Summer’s Best Fruit Salad really is the BEST!  So refreshing and absolutely beautiful!  Of course, you can vary up the fruits you use to fit your own tastes.  The toasted coconut on the top adds a wonderful added flavor and texture.  This always is a hit whenever I serve this.  And the great thing is, the acid from the lemon and the lime juice keep the fruit from oxidizing and turning brownish, so it stays gorgeous all day!  Enjoy!
