- 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
- 1 cup sliced fresh apples
- 1 cup orange slices
- 1 cup strawberries, sliced
- 1 cup grapes
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3 tbsp orange juice
- 1/2 cup soft (silken) tofu, pureed
- 2 tsp grated orange rind
- 1 tsp poppy seeds (optional)
Combine the cornstarch with the lemon juice in a medium saucepan and stir until well blended. Place the saucepan over medium heat and add the sugar and orange juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the stove and allow to cool thoroughly.
Fold the pureed tofu, orange rind and poppy seeds into the juice mixture and chill for at least one hour.
Immediately before serving, pour the dressing over the fruit and serve.
