CREAMY FRUIT SALAD
This week is a creamy fruit Salad.
- 2 cups 1% milk
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zestoptional
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 lb fresh strawberrieshulled and quartered
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup fresh blackberries
- 1 cup mandarin orangesoptional (see note)
- 3 kiwi sliced, optional (see note)
- 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks optional (see note)
- 1 cup red grapes
In a medium skillet, whisk together milk, sugar and corn starch. Cook over medium heat, whisking frequently, until thickened, about 8-10 minutes (it won’t be thick like pudding, it is a dressing — but it will thicken considerably).
Stir in lemon zest (if using) and vanilla. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl combine strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, oranges, kiwi, pineapple and grapes. Pour dressing over and toss to coat (be gentle — you don’t want mush!).
Serve at room temperature or chill to serve later. If making ahead, I prefer not to add the dressing until 3-4 hours or less before serving.
