Mai tai compote

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 medium Dole fresh pineapple
1 \N Orange; peeled and sliced
1 \N Kiwi fruit; peeled and sliced
1 cup Strawberries; halved
½ cup Seedless red grapes
¼ cup Fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons Honey
1 tablespoon Light rum
1 tablespoon Orange flavored liqueur
½ teaspoon Grated lime peel
1 \N Firm Dole banana

Cut pineapple lengthwise through crown. Remove fruit with curved knife, leaving shells intact. Trim off core and cut fruit into chunks.

In large bowl, combine pineapple, orange, kiwi, strawberries and grapes.

To make dressing, in a 1-quart measure, combine remaining ingredients, except banana. Pour dressing over fruit. Toss gently to coat. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour. ( I think it needs a little longer to set, to let the flavors mingle better ). Just before serving, slice banana into fruit salad. Toss gently. Spoon salad into pineapple shells and serve.

Makes 6 - 8 servings.

NOTES : This is very good. The first time I made this it was for a Hawaiian Theme Party I was going to, I made a mistake by tasting it right after making it... before the flavors mingled and I didn't think it tasted that great, ( I think I was tasting too much of the liqueurs) and almost didn't bring it to the party, but after a while I tasted it again and it was wonderful.
