Summer says light and cool.

And nothing fits a summer menu more comfortably than a fruit dessert.We may count our calories, watch our waistline and speak with concern about cholesterol, but we are still eating dessert.

The simplest of succulent fresh fruit desserts can steal the limelight from their "death-by-chocolate" cousins. Fresh fruit is replacing chocolate as the dessert of choice.

Whether as the appreciated end of a perfect lunch or the last, sumptuous bite of a memorable dinner, fresh fruit desserts make a grande finale for any meal.
