Fruit Salad with Champagne Lime Dressing

Here is another soy free recipe that includes one of my favorite ingredients, champagne!

4 bananas, peeled and sliced in rounds

3 apples, cored and cut into bite-sized chunks

3 kiwis, peeled and sliced

2 mangoes, peeled, cored, and cut into bite-sized chunks

1 small bunch seedless grapes (about 1 pound), stems removed

1/2 cup champagne

juice of 2 limes

1/4 cup sugar, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Mix all fruit in a large bowl.

In a small bowl, mix champagne, limes, sugar, and nutmeg. Taste, then increase sugar as necessary until dressing is only slightly tart.

Toss dressing with fruit and refrigerate until serving.

Serves 4 to 6 as a centerpiece dish of a breakfast or brunch, or up to 12 as one of many party snacks. Will keep for about one week in sealed containers in the refrigerator.
