    Mindelicious's Note:

    A great way to start a meal!! This light fruit salad is low in fat, easy to prepare, and sure to tantalize your taste buds. Enjoy this before a meal for great digestion courtesy of the bromelian in the pineapples. Make sure to use fresh ripe fruit! From the Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. (Cook time is chill time)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups cranberries
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup orange juice
    • 12 bibb lettuce (at least two leaves for each serving)
    • 2 large oranges, peeled and sectioned
    • 1/2 large pineapple, peeled, cored, sliced, and cut into wedges
    • 2 large pears, cored and sliced into wedges (brush with lemon juice to keep from browning)
    • 2 kiwi, peeled and sliced lengthwise into wedges

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the dressing, in a medium saucepan combine cranberries and water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 4-5 minutes or until berries just begin to pop. Remove saucepan from heat and stif in sugar and orange juice.
    2. 2
      When cool, press misture through a sieve. Discard, compost, or use the cranberry skins in something else. Cover and chill the dressing about 2 hours until thoroughly chilled (the dressing will thicken slightly).
    3. 3
      To serve line each plate/bowl with lettuce leaves and arrange fruit on top. Drizzle with dressing & enjoy!

      Well, with the exception of the frozen cranberries, all the fruit I used was fresh, & made for an exceptionally great tasting salad! Loved the dressing, too, but couldn't bring myself to discard the cranberry skins, so made 'em into a sweet/tart berry sauce to have over frozen yogurt! Thanks for sharing a great keeper of a salad recipe! [Recipenapped & made in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 23]
