Poppy Seed Dressing:
3/4 cup orange juice

Combine juice and cornstarch in a 2-cup glass measure. stirring well.
Microwave at HIGH for 2 1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring once.
Add honey, poppy seeds, and orange rind; stir well.
Cover and chill. YIELD: 3/4 cup
Curly leaf lettuce leaves
1 medium-size fresh pineapple
2 medium-kiwifruit, peeled

Place lettuce leaves on a serving platter; set aside.
Peel and trim eyes from the pineapple, removing core. Cut pineapple into 6 slices. Arrange over lettuce leaves. Cut kiwifruit unto 6 slices; arrange over pineapple slices. Pour 2 tablespoons of Poppy Seed Dressing over each serving.
