This yummy and refreshing salad goes well with a breakfast or brunch. It is also a big hit at pot lucks! Most of the preparation is done the day before serving.

We enjoyed this a lot, I did notice that it had thickened a little too much when I went to combine with the fruit, easily fixed by adding a little pineapple juice. Next time I believe I will use Splenda in place of sugar and add just a bit more as we liked it a little sweeter.I also added flaked coconut !!

Some of them do use pasteurized but not all. I worked in a restaurant in Manhattan until about 2 years ago that used (shocking) fresh yolks. Some do but it's not absolutely essential.

Once married to a chef I know they do use pasteurized eggs in those sauces.
