Recipe Tip

- Lemon curd can be purchased at the supermarket. It is a cooked mixture of lemon juice, egg yolks and sugar. Other citrus fruit curds, like lime or tangerine, can be substituted.

- To pack along, place each fruit in a separate resealable plastic food bag. Place dip in a separate covered plastic storage container. Keep chilled in cooler with ice until serving time.
