Printable Recipe: Regal Fresh Fruit and Sorbet Dessert

Margi Lenga Kahn, Special to the Jewish Light

This is a simple, elegant, delicious, and healthy way to complete your holiday feast. For this composed dessert, you will need 1 of each for every serving: kiwi, red plum, and scoop of lime sorbet. The fruit can be sliced and even arranged on individual dessert plates in advance; keep refrigerated until you’re ready to top the fruit with a scoop of sorbet, garnish with coconut, and serve. Feel free to substitute other fresh, vividly colored fruits and your favorite sorbet flavor!
