Planning holiday meals often involves the search for at least one new recipe to bring to the holiday table. It’s a holiday tradition at Places In The Home to have a fresh fruit melange. Some of my family members insists a fruit melange balances out the calories of the rich meal, appetizers, and desserts. This recipe will definitely keep ’em happy while tipping the scales of culinary and caloric justice in favor of holiday “this is delicious!” harmony.
