Fruit Color Wheel

Compose a fruit color wheel inspired by the artist color wheel and serve it with a creamy dipping sauce.

Fruit Color Wheel

Arrange your fruit color wheel in the color spectrum order. Start your circle with yellow followed by green, blue, purple, red, then finally orange to connect the circle back to yellow.

Choose golden YELLOW chunks of pineapple, ruby RED strawberries and BLUE berries for the primary colors. Add sunny ORANGE mandarin sections, PURPLE grapes and bright GREEN slices of kiwi to represent the secondary colors.

Voila! A beautiful, light dessert.

Fruit:1 pineapple, cored and cut into chunks

2 pints of strawberries, cut into quarters

2 pints blueberries, rinsed

24 oz. mandarin orange sections, drained1 small bunch of seedless grapes, stemmed

4 kiwi, peeled and sliced

Arrange the cut fruit in wedges around the bowl of dipping sauce onto a platter (a lazy susan works nicely). Nestle toothpicks between the sauce and fruit.

For a refreshing summer presentation: Stir together 12 oz. lemon yogurt, 1 tsp. reserved mandarin orange syrup, and 1 tsp. poppy seeds, until well blended. Garnish with fresh mint leaves.

For a cozy winter presentation: Serve warmed Nutella dusted with cinnamon as the dipping sauce. Garnish using dark squares of chocolate to separate the wedges of fruit.
