It looks like beamer is not taking into account the labelwidth and  
label separation.
I tried to get what you want by preceding the first \begin{column}  
with an indent.
See this hack (horrible but it works)




        \item Fruit
                \begin{column}{.48\linewidth}%with .5 column sep is  
very small.
                    Enter text into the left column
                    Enter text into the right column
        \item Vegetable


Warning: if you replace the \ColIndent before the \begin{column} don't  
forget to put a % after the last \hspace{..}.
If you don't then extra whitespace is inserted before the first column  
(and it won't line up properly).
