I’m so excited to have Arsy from Rubies & Radishes sharing a beautiful and delicious spring recipe with all my readers! Arsy creates some of the most amazing Paleo recipes I have ever seen! She has two Paleo cookbooks out, The Paleo Slow Cooker, and a BRAND new one, The Paleo Foodie! Her unique cultural flare gives all her recipes a distinct Arsy touch and I am so delighted that she is offering to share one of her favorites from The Paleo Foodie Cookbook!
Coconut-Lime Fruit Salad from The Paleo Foodie Cookbook
The coconut-lime dressing adds a tropical feel to this lightly dressed fruit salad, making it a perfect addition to a spring brunch or picnic. It’s also a great way for busy moms to prepare a healthy and exciting snack.
The coconut milk in this recipe adds a nourishing source of fat and additional nutrients to the fruit salad. The addition of the fat tends to keep you full longer too! I highly recommend using homemade coconut milk or choosing a brand of coconut milk that uses BPA-free packaging and does not add any gums or preservatives.
This recipe is easy to make and packed with flavor. It is a toddler favorite in our household.
This Coconut-Lime Fruit Salad is from the newly released cookbook, The Paleo Foodie. The Paleo Foodie is filled with gourmet yet simple to make Paleo recipes with fresh and vibrant flavors.
