Farm Fresh: Luscious dip makes summer fruits even more delectable

Thursday, July 15, 1999

Simple but refreshing desserts are just the ticket for the lazy days of summer. Fresh Fruit Dip can be made in a matter of minutes -- it has only three ingredients, and the directions are simple: mix and enjoy. We thank Mary Cambest of Baldwin Borough for sharing her recipe with us. -- Tested by Arlene Burnett

Fresh Fruit Dip

1 12-ounce container whipped topping, thawed
1 large (4.6-ounce) vanilla pudding and pie filling (not instant)
3 to 4 ounces rum or amaretto or 1 teaspoon of rum or brandy extract
6 to 7 cups of cubed or sliced fruit (we used grapes, cherries, strawberries and cantaloupe)

Place all dip ingredients in a large bowl; beat on medium speed with electric mixer until combined. Serve with fruit of your choice. Refrigerate until ready to use.

If you have a fruit or vegetable that you would like to see featured between now and Sept. 30, please call food editor Suzanne Martinson at 412-263-1760 or e-mail us aburnett@post-gazette.com. or bkline@post-gazette.com.

We're also looking for easy-to-make, quick recipes that highlight the fabulous flavors of fresh produce.
