* Nonalcoholic fruit basket: For the Grand Marnier, substitute a mixture of 3 tbsp (45 mL) fresh orange juice and 3 tbsp (45 mL) honey.
* Luncheon salad: For the fruits and vegetables, use 1 small honeydew melon, 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sliced, hulled strawberries, 1 large crisp red apple such as Delicious or Cortland, 1 cup (250 mL) seedless green grapes, 2 peeled sliced kiwis and 1/2 cup (125 mL) diced cucumber. Omit the cantaloupe, pear, starfruit and Grand Marnier. In a large bowl, toss 6 cups (1.5 L) mesclun salad leaves, 2 cups (500 mL) watercress, and 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped scallions. Arrange on 6 salad plates and spoon the fruit on top. Add a scoop of low-fat cottage cheese and sprinkle with the shredded mint.
