Additional comments:

1. If made in a 10 x 6-inch baking dish; cut into squares and serve on lettuce-lined plates as a salad, or on plates with a pureed strawberry or raspberry sauce for dessert.
2. The fruit mixture can be spooned into hollowed-out orange halves and frozen. Cut thin slice from bottom of orange halves so they will stand; place in muffin tins to freeze. provides many fine recipes for diabetic diets.
