I love this recipe because I can combine a variety of my favorite fresh fruits, including apples, and make it a day before serving it. This dressing keeps the apples white and the other fruits fresh tasting.

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons Splenda or sugar
  • 2 medium red apples, cored and diced
  • 2 cups grapes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

In a small saucepan, combine lime juice, rice vinegar, cornstarch and sugar. Stir to mix. Cook over medium hot heat until mixture comes to a boil while stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Combine fresh fruits of your choice in a large bowl. Add dressing and stir to mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
