 This is a very nice fruit salad to end a meal with when you're entertaining.
 Remember, it may be low in fat, but high in calories (especially if only 2
 people are digging in-who would do such a thing? :)  )
 Giglio's Fruit Salad (no, not gigolo's) [T]
      from Cooking From an Italian Garden, by Paola Scaravelli (Holt, Rinehart,
      & Winston: 1984)  a vegetarian but very high fat cookbook - ADAPTED
 8 plums, pitted and sliced
 6 peaches, pitted, peeled, and sliced
 1 banana, peeled and sliced
 1/2 c grapes, seedless or seeded
 1/2 c champagne or dry sparkling wine (or Riesling)
 1/2 hot pepper, seeded and cut in two pieces
 1 head Boston lettuce, torn into small pieces
 1/2 c Rice Dream
 Put fruit in a bowl, drain and reserve juice.
 Put champagne and the hot pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and
 remove from heat.  Discard hot pepper and let champagne sit for 10 minutes.
 Combine fruit and lettuce in a salad bowl or individual salad bowls.  Add
 Rice Dream to cooled champagne and mix well.  Pour over salad and serve
 The original recipe called for heavy cream, and I have tested it with Rice
 Dream.  It tastes great, but Rice Dream does have fat.  I have not tried low
 fat soy milk (can't find it, for one thing), but the vanilla flavor would
 probably be perfect.  It is also good, though not as good, without a cream
 substitute at all.  A sweeter wine such as Riesling is better without Rice
 NOTE:  boil the wine longer if you want all of the alcohol out.  I don't serve
 this to children or alcoholic friends.  Most of it seems to be gone, however.
