Fresh Fruit Cup
Another brunch favorite:
(When fresh fruit is not available, you can use frozen mixed fruit)
4 medium-size fresh pears, cored and diced
2 T. fresh lemon juice
2 cups halved fresh strawberries
3/4 pound fresh plums, pitted and thinly sliced
2 cups peeled, diced fresh peaches
2 cups sparkling apple cider, chilled
Fresh mint sprigs (optional)
Place diced pears in a large bowl, sprinkle with lemon juice; toss gently.
Add strawberries, plums, and peaches; toss gently to combine.
To serve, place 1 cup fruit mixture in individual dessert cups. Pour 1/4 cup sparkling apple cider over each serving.
Garnish with fresh mint sprigs, if desired.
YIELD: 8 servings.
