Fruit Pyramids

On each salad plate lay a leaf of fresh lettuce, then a slice of canned pineapple, then whole slices of pared apple, orange, peach, plum or any other fruit that is in season. On the top place a maraschino cherry, and pour over all a dressing made of equal parts of lemon juice and olive oil.
