Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 mango
  • 1 guava
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves

the dressing

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoons palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions
 

  • Keep the coconut oil in a warm place or in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes to melt, if it is in solid form. Mix the palm sugar with water and lemon juice and shake well until completely dissolved. Add coconut oil and shake until all the 3 ingredients are well blended.
  • Toss the chopped fruits, pomegranate seeds, coconut and mint leaves. Drizzle the dressing and toss just before serving.
  • This salad is best served at room temperature, since the coconut oil tends to solidify when chilled.

  • Desiccated coconut may also be used if coconut flakes are unavailable.
