Fruit and Cheese Antipasto! A great light meal!

Who doesn't love fresh fruit?  I'm thinking of summer and wanted to share a great appetizer or light meal using fresh fruit. I used my own creation of a healthy orange/lemon drizzle to top it which worked out wonderful..The red onion compliments the fruit.. Healthy for sure!   Enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We sure did!  Served with crackers or a light crispy toasted bread!

Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,


Orange Lemon Drizzle
2 tablespoons pineapple juice
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
1 tablespoon yogurt (low calorie)vanilla would be fine
Whisk above, drizzle over antipasto  Serves 2  Note: Drizzle can be doubled or even tripled!

Fruit Antipasto
1/2 cup fresh pineapple cut in pieces
1/2  fresh sliced peaches or nectarines
1 orange (remove skin for easier eating)
1 pear left on
1 apple sliced
1/2 sliced banana (optional)
1/4 lb. Gouda cheese( sliced thin) Note:  any light cheese will work also
 red leaf lettuce for color or Bibb lettuce broken in  pieces
1/4 sliced red onion

Arrange fruit, cheese on lettuce lined plate or platter..Top with cheese slices and red onion..Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.. Drizzle above orange/lemon dressing recipe or a light Italian...
