2 Festive Fruit Plate & Dip

When I go to the store, it is easy to pick up an assortment of cut up fruit, ready to eat.  Then I glance at the price and gasp.  $15 for 2 cups of mixed cantaloupe and honeydew melon??

Yes, it is winter and fruit is not in season in Utah.  I had my family over for a holiday gathering and thought that a colorful plate of fruit would be the perfect appetizer to the main course.

This fruit plate can easily serve 30 or more people. This platter measures 15"x26".   I froze the left over fruit (blueberries, oranges, strawberries and pineapple) to use in smoothies.

My husband called the fruit dip "the best whipped cream I've ever had."  It is a combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, whipping cream and lemon juice/zest.  Add just enough pineapple juice to get the consistency you want and you will have a wonderful fruit dip to serve your guests.

Cost for this bountiful platter and dip?  $30

A much better deal than 2 cups of melon!
