Winter Fruit Salad with Purple Foam Sauce

This is one of my favorite fruit salads for winter, and Al likes it, too!  Double win!  I usually make the sauce first, and then cut up the fruit while it cools.  The sauce is absolutely fabulous, it foams up from the marshmallows, and the blueberries turn it purple.  I use a whole bag of blueberries because I love them so much, but just a cup would work.  This makes a lot, but we eat it up pretty quickly.  It’s supposed to be chilled before it’s eaten, but we can’t wait, and we always have a bowl each just as soon as it’s finished!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
