GET YO CRUNCH ON! Do you like crunchy creamy sweet things? I do. And I sure love eating this salad! The sauce is date paste mixed with unsweetened coconut yogurt, which is something I don't typically buy, but since I'm currently trying out different fermented foods I thought I'd give it a chance. It's pretty expensive and I wouldn't recommend it all too often but it is pretty delicious in this fruit salad. I also think the plain coconut yogurt is really good dolloped on top of a burrito bowl. Bottom line, if you do buy it you can come up with lots of ways to eat it up (baked potatoes, burritos, creamy soups, etc.). The alternative would be to just use the Tofu Cream from my Vegan Apple Salad recipe (link below). ๐Ÿ˜‰
