Asian Pineapple Salad with Peanut Coconut Dressing

Asian Pineapple Salad with Peanut Coconut Dressing

Asian Pineapple Salad with Coconut Peanut Dressing is a salad lover’s dream!  packed with refreshing pineapple and crunchy peanuts, peppers, carrots, jicama and coconut all doused with the most AMAZING silky Peanut Coconut Dressing that I could drink by itself!

For the last two years in San Diego we virtually haven’t had a winter – I was in sandals all year round – until this year.  Its been beautifully brisk during the day and dropped into the 30s at night and I am embracing every see-my-breath-air-second.  I know that sounds melodramatic for all you out there with snow but we will take any winter we can get!  Kiwi has also been loving the change because it means she can play ball for longer (she easily overheats otherwise), or at least sleep with her ball without losing it to panting (see nap time HERE).  With all this actually-feels-like-winter weather, I’ve been craving (and posting) more comfort creamy, cheesy food but you know what I find equally as comforting and satisfying?….
