Fresh Pineapple Boats
Row, Row Your Boat..
A variety of fresh fruits, cut in bite size pieces and piled into
(cut length wise and scooped out but with leaves still intact)
makes a very pretty
addition to a buffet table. Avoid apples and bananas unless dipped
in lemon juice and water.
If these boats will sit for any lenght of time, don't use fruit
that discolors easily.
Served with a dipping sauce on the side it's perfect for spring
