Fruit Salad with Cream Cheese-Pecan Topping
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup fresh blackberries
2 cups cubed cantaloupe
2 cups halved green grapes
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 starfruit, sliced
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a serving bowl, combine the blueberries, blackberries, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, and starfruit.
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and lemon juice at medium-low speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
In a separate medium bowl, beat the heavy cream at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until slightly thickened. Gradually add the confectioners' sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the cream cheese mixture; spread over the fruit. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Serve immediately.
