You can use your own choice of fruit for this salad. Some ideas are: pineapple rings; grapes (could be frozen); kiwi fruit cut in wedges; orange segments; passionfrut halves; tamarillos cubed; strawberries; melon sliced and balled; mangoes sliced; apple slces dipped in lemon juice
Ricotta Topping:

¼ cup dried apricots soaked overnight; ½ cup liquid from apricots; ½ cup low fat ricotta cheese

Combine apricots, liquid and ricotta in a blender until smooth.

Variations: substitute apricots and liquid with 1 ripe banana and ½ cup of lemon juice or ½ cup orange juice or ¼ cup stewed apple and ¼ cup of liquid.

I used ricotta blended with a couple of Satsuma plums, yum, Anne

It was Jane's birthday, she absolutely, without a doubt, loved her present!
