Pineapple Rum Coconut Fluff Salad

I don’t know where you are, but where I am, in the heart of St. Louis, it’s HOT. And yes, it requires all capitals because o.m.g. Heat Index of 106 a couple of times last week alone. This is crazy. By the end of the day, as evening comes, we are so sick of being cooped up inside. We are ready to get out and spend some time in the backyard or at our local park, with family as the temperatures begin to cool and the sun goes down.

The perfect time for a cookout. We fire up that grill and eat lots, laugh lots and enjoy our time together.

This Pineapple Rum Coconut Fluff Salad is a huge hit at any gathering and is gobbled up pretty quickly. Make sure you make plenty and be prepared to share the recipe too. I have been for years.

These pictures show off all the wonderful ingredients, but you can’t imagine the wonderful flavors dancing across your tongue. It goes fast and is gobbled up by my family.

If you wind up with leftovers, which for me only ever happens if I make a double batch, it’s great the next day for breakfast, straight out of the fridge.

How do I know? Let’s not talk about that right now. Let’s just dig into this fabulous sweet side dish and call it a day.

I love pineapple, so definitely intrigued by this! The weather here hasn't been too cookout-like, unfortunately--lots of rain and random thunderstorms, but I'm hoping for sunshine on the weekend! That Pineapple Rum French Toast sounds amazing too!
