Here is how to make cheesecake salad in a pineapple boat

Even though it looks like a dessert for summer, you can actually make this salad year-round. Guests love to eat fruit in the dead of winter, so serve it at your next dinner party. It even works well for holiday entertaining with the red accents from the strawberries.

This is an easy recipe to prepare. It’s helpful to have a sharp serated knife like this one to carve the boat out of the pineapple. If you need to make it ahead, store the cheesecake salad in a bowl separate from the pineapple, since the yogurt will start to sour in the pineapple.
