  • If you are serving later, juice one more lemon and toss the chopped apples in the lemon juice so that they don't brown. Drain. Add the apples to the other fruit, and the lemon juice to the dressing.

This was absolutely awfull. The 7 lemons & coconut milk = SOUR. The sugared nuts...not enough butter to melt the sugar and it sure doesn't happen between 7 & 10 minutes...don't waste your time. A simple citrus & honey recipe is great on fruit salad...Glad I didn't pour it over my beautiful fruit!!
