Recipe from the cookbook The Italian Country Table by Lynne Rossetto Kasper. Lynne says,
"A melon salad is not a typical opening to a meal in Italy. I certainly didn't expect it when I Stayed at Le Frise, a guest farm in the mountains of

Cantaloupe with Spiced White Wine

Fresh Fruit Salad
This is my favorite fresh fruit salad. My mother-in-law, Gertrude Zemp, taught me to make this when I
was a young bride. It is very refreshing and also low in calories. I use whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad.
The banana dressing is very light and compliments the fruit. You will never want to make a "yucky" canned fruit salad again!
A refreshing and cooling melon salad or starter for your meal.

course. If you love mangos, you'll love this recipe."
