Dairy Free "Frog Eye" Salad

We love this salad for picnics because so little in ingredients can make SO much. My kids love it because it has a cool "gross" name. ;) I love it because it includes healthy fruits and can be made in advance and refrigerated. My hubby loves it, but had trouble with the dairy in the original version. We found a way to switch it up and give it a nice tropical boost.

Dairy Free "Frog Eye" Salad

  • 1 Tbs. flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup pineapple juice
