Giglio's Fruit Salad [T]















Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber, Sodium-Free, Low Sodium


8 each plums
pitted, sliced
6 each peaches
pitted, peeled, sliced
1 each bananas
peeled, sliced
½ cup grapes, seedless
seedless or seeded
½ cup champagne
or dry sparkling wine
½ each hot chili peppers
seeded and cut
1 head boston lettuce
½ cup rice milk


Put fruit in a bowl, drain and reserve juice.

Put champagne and the hot pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Discard hot pepper and let champagne sit for 10 minutes.

Combine fruit and lettuce in a salad bowl or individual salad bowls.

Add Rice Dream to cooled champagne and mix well.

Pour over salad and serve immediately.

The original recipe called for heavy cream, and I have tested it with Rice Dream.

It tastes great, but Rice Dream does have fat. I have not tried low fat soy milk (can't find it, for one thing), but the vanilla flavor would probably be perfect. It is also good, though not as good, without a cream substitute at all. A sweeter wine such as Riesling is better without Rice Dream. NOTE: boil the wine longer if you want all of the alcohol out. I don't serve this to children or alcoholic friends. Most of it seems to be gone, however.
