1/2 cup regular or reduced-fat mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/3 cup granulated (white) sugar

Estimated Time

Preparation/Total Time: 20 minutes

Additional Information

To peel kiwi fruit: First cut about 1/8 inch off of one end. Next, slip a spoon between the fruit and the skin and move it so that it loosens the skin all the way around. Simply slip the peel off, and you have a perfectly round peeled kiwi fruit!

* Balsamic vinegar instead of the white vinegar gives the salad dressing a sweeter, richer flavor.
