Pina Colada Salad

Normally I wouldn't make something like this... but, it just so happens that I got some bright lights in my Bountiful Basket a few weeks ago.  I thought it turned out pretty good, and it was something different.

Pina Colada Salad- From Mr. Food  
This tropical recipe gives us another way to enjoy the tastes of a popular island a good-for-us salad featuring healthy Bright Lights greens.

1 bunch Bright Lights, cut into bite-sized pieces (see Notes)
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
1 (8.5-ounce) can cream of coconut
*** I didn't have any cream of coconut, so I used regular coconut flakes instead.

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar                             
1 (0.7-ounce) package dry Italian salad dressing mix         
***I didn't have any dry Italian dressing mix, so I just used regular Italian dressing and NO apple cider vinegar

1.In a large bowl, combine Bright Lights and pineapple chunks.

2.In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour dressing over salad then toss to mix; serve.

•Bright Lights is a new generation of the popular leafy green Swiss chard. It features over sized leaves and a delicate flavor, and is available in exciting colors like gold, orange, pink, red, and white with leaves that are mostly medium to deep green with colorful veins throughout.

•You can give this salad even more color, texture and flavor by garnishing it with a few maraschino cherry halves just before serving.
