    lazy gourmet's Note:

    This one is sooooooooo easy! Less than a half hour to make and it tastes yummy and presents beautifully. Have only tried this with fresh fruit, but would be interested in knowing how canned or frozen works as well. Being that I am not an overt fan of the typical "fruit cocktail", this one was really different and GOOD!

      As easy and elegant as you said it would be. Can't stand the canned stuff either but this is very good. Made for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes, ZWT5

      What a lovely tasty dessert! and it was a hit; I didn't have lime so I used lemon but followed your recipe; the pineapple tastes wonderful; what great combination and it is easy to prepare. I made this for ZWT5.Thanks for posting. Rita
