Directions
1.
For dressing, in a medium saucepan combine cranberries and water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until berries just begin to pop. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in sugar and orange juice. When cool, press mixture through a sieve. Discard cranberry skins. Cover and chill the dressing about 2 hours or until thoroughly chilled. (The dressing will thicken slightly as it chills.)
2.
To serve, line 6 small bowls or plates with lettuce leaves. Arrange fruit on lettuce leaves. Drizzle with dressing.

Note
  • * To prevent pears from darkening, brush cut edges with lemon juice.
