Coconut & Portobello Salad

I am forever trying to get L to enjoy coconut.  There are so many wonderful dairy alternative products made with coconut that if she would just enjoy it, a world of foods would be open to her.

Finally this week it happened.  “They” say to give a child a food item up to 12 times if you want them to like it.  I didn’t go that far but I have been trying hard.

I LOVE coconut, love!

With shredded coconut in the house I knew it wouldn’t last long and instead of shoveling it into my mouth by the spoonful I incorporated it into my salad.

  • mixed greens
  • grilled portobello mushrooms (left over from last night’s dinner)
  • blackberries
  • craisins (rinsed to rid them of some of their sugar content)
  • walnuts
  • coconut
  • oil and vinegar

Layered and tossed it makes a sweet salad but you must enjoy coconut and PILE IT ON! YUM!
