Tropical Ambrosia Salad

I've replaced the usual sour cream with nonfat yogurt and taken out most of the high-fat coconut. Yet, this cool, delicious salad retains the wonderful, refreshing flavors of the Caribbean.

Makes 4 servings

1        8-ounce can pineapple chunks or tidbits (packed in juice), drained
1        8-ounce can mandarin orange slices (packed in juice), drained
1        cup vanilla nonfat yogurt
2        teaspoons shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1        teaspoon vanilla extract
¼       teaspoon coconut extract

Gather your ingredients.

Place pineapple and oranges in a medium bowl.

In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients, mixing well.

Add to fruit, stirring until well blended.
