Sweet Fall Dessert Salad

A plate of sweet fall dessert salad for the holidays

Here is something sweet for the holidays. It's a low calorie dessert, that will give you the sweet taste, but without the extra pounds. The ginger gives this sweet treat a refreshing taste. I like to make it an hour before serving, so the flavors marinade. This dessert is perfect for gluten-free, dairy-free and weight-watchers.
