Fruit Salad with Cranberry Dressing

Ingredients
2
cups cranberries
1/3
cup water
1
cup sugar
1/4
cup orange juice
 
Bibb lettuce leaves
2
large oranges, peeled and sectioned (2 cups)
1/2
large pineapple, peeled, cored, sliced, and cut into wedges
2
large ripe pears, cored and sliced into wedges* (2 cups)
2
kiwifruit and/or golden kiwifruit, peeled and sliced lengthwise into wedges (1 cup)

Directions

  1. For dressing, in a medium saucepan combine cranberries and water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until berries just begin to pop. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in sugar and orange juice. When cool, press mixture through a sieve. Discard cranberry skins. Cover and chill the dressing about 2 hours or until thoroughly chilled. (The dressing will thicken slightly as it chills.)
  2. To serve, line 6 small bowls or plates with lettuce leaves. Arrange fruit on lettuce leaves. Drizzle with dressing.
  3. Makes 6 side-dish servings.
