In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Fresh Fruit Medley with Orange Dressing. This fruit salad is made from oranges, apples, and bananas, which are generally easy-to-find. It becomes elegant when Orange Dressing is drizzled over the top.


Ingredients:

2 oranges, peeled and sliced into quarter-slices
2 apples, unpeeled and cubed (I used red delicious apples.)
2 bananas, sliced
splash of lemon juice
1 cup orange juice
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup orange juice, ½ cup sugar, and 2 teaspoons cornstarch. Cook over low to medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened. Cool. Refrigerate until ready to use. When ready to assemble your salad, prepare the 2 oranges, 2 apples, and 2 bananas, using some lemon juice to protect the apples and bananas from browning. Stir fruits pieces until combined, and then transfer mixture to a nice medium-sized salad bowl. When ready to serve, pour the Orange Dressing into a small pitcher. Spoon a generous portion of the fruit mixture into sherbet glasses, and drizzle Orange Dressing over the top. This is a simple and elegant dessert, and is made of items you will quite often have on hand. It is a wonderful fruit salad to grace your holiday table, and it is healthy and low in calories. I hope you enjoy this recipe! –Betty 
