    Very nice topping for a fruit salad - ANY fruit salad. I did make a small change in deciding to forego the whipping cream - just didn't feel it was necessary as I liked the flavour of the fruit dip before its addition. Bright, fresh, tangy, with a delicate hint of orange. The dates and pistachios provided textural and taste interest and I will definitely be making this again to serve on a variety of fruit. Thank you!

    Nice light dessert just right for a summer time lunch. Does make too much dip though for the amount of fruit, although I think I could eat the dip with a spoon too. I might add a tbsp or 2 of an orange liqueur to give it that little extra umf.
    This recipe is right up my alley! It has CG written all over it! I used all three of the fruits listed and made as directed. The only deviation was replacing some of the fresh orange juice with orange blossom water (about 1/2 teaspoon). Garnished with some orange zest, too. Perfect in my book! THANKS for posting!

    OUTSTANDING FRUIT SALAD, & when making it, I was very generous with both the dates & the nuts, while keeping everything else as written! The combo of fruits & your fruit dip really makes this something very special, & it's definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]

    This was a great alternative to chips for an afternoon get together. Perfect for summer visitors! I made it all ahead of time then just put the bowls together and served. Lots of compliments!! Thank you for the post.


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
