From Cooking From an Italian Garden, by Paola Scaravelli (Holt, Rinehart, & Winston: 1984) a vegetarian but very high fat cookbook - ADAPTED Put fruit in a bowl, drain and reserve juice.

Put champagne and the hot pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and remove from heat. Discard hot pepper and let champagne sit for 10 minutes.

Combine fruit and lettuce in a salad bowl or individual salad bowls. Add Rice Dream to cooled champagne and mix well. Pour over salad and serve immediately.

The original recipe called for heavy cream, and I have tested it with Rice Dream. It tastes great, but Rice Dream does have fat. I have not tried low fat soy milk (can't find it, for one thing), but the vanilla flavor would probably be perfect. It is also good, though not as good, without a cream substitute at all. A sweeter wine such as Riesling is better without Rice Dream.

NOTE: boil the wine longer if you want all of the alcohol out. I don't serve this to children or alcoholic friends. Most of it seems to be gone, however.
