Fruit salad is a welcome treat at any function, especially for those who are watching their sugar or fat intake. Although this recipe calls for a dressing, the fruit can be served without.

Adding blueberries as the symbolic blue for Mary makes this a welcome treat for Marian feastdays, especially in the summer.

DIRECTIONS

Peel oranges; separate into membrane-free sections. Add pineapple chunks, retaining the juice for the Dressing. Slice bananas; add with grapefruit sections, walnut meats, and berries. Add enough Fruit Salad Dressing (see recipe) to hold fruits together. Serve on water cress with additional dressing. Makes 6 servings.
