Tropical Fruit Dip

This month on the Monday Movie Challenge we are taking inspiration from our Dad’s favorite movie. One of my dad’s favorite movies is Donovan’s Reef. There is not a lot of actual prepared food in the movie. There are items mentioned or alluded to such as lunch or a picnic or tea. There is also a lot of beer given Donovan owns the local bar. Given the tropical setting and the tropical fruit shown throughout the movie, I decided to make a Tropical Fruit Dip.

Now let’s see what everyone else was inspired to create for this month’s #MovieMondayChallenge!! If you’d like to join our Facebook group, you can request an invite here.

  • My mom loves John Wayne but I’ve only ever seen The Quiet Man (Which I love!!). I think I might want to check this one out! Love the fruit sip and the great pineapple serving bowl!

  • That looks delicious! I make a fruit platter each year for our family’s 4th of July party and I try to make a new dip to go with it each year. This sounds amazing. Thanks so much for sharing at the Summer Time Fun Party. Pinned.
