Such a refreshing salad! Made as is (well, it was for a weeknight, so we used canned pineapple even though fresh must undoubtedly be better - and, even though my husband loves bacon, since I can't have any, he nixed having bacon even for his!!!!!...., and, surprisingly enough he loved this anyway, so much so that he doesn't even want to try adding the bacon in later???? that's really saying something, coming from him - usually he feels deprived if bacon is on the menu and he doesn't get 'his share'..... (silly boy!)... ME? I want to sub in turkey ham next time, cuz I love the sweet and salty flavors suggested in the recipe - hubby was looking at the Christmas bills coming up and he just didn't want to open the package tonight...? *sigh*). Anyway, with those two small changes, the salad was very refreshing indeed. I must say that I do want to try some of the suggestions made by other reviewers, such as adding in garlic, ginger, red pepper, and much more toasted coconut. Also want to try the dressing with the rice vinegar as a couple of reviewers suggested. The red wine vinegar is awfully pretty if you want to serve the salad elements all separate as we did. Served this alongside Key West Chicken from this site, all with some grilled pineapple, onions, & green peppers (grilled via a grill wok), as well as a good bit more toasted coconut. Yum! Plan to serve this monthly in that combination. Thanks, Marianne G! I think this will make great memories for our children!
