Cool, creamy and slightly sweet, your entire family will love this fresh fruit salad tossed in a tangy honey-yogurt dressing. All natural and ready in 10 minutes!
My mom has been making this fruit salad with a honey yogurt dressing for as long as I can remember. We always had plain yogurt in the house growing up to serve with Lebanese food or to whip up a quick Cucumber Laban Sauce so it only makes sense that she used it in fruit salad.
The added bonus of tossing the fresh fruit in yogurt is that it keeps the bananas, apples and other fruits from browning. I like making a big batch on Monday morning and reaching for it whenever my toddler needs a quick treat throughout the week. It's also great for serving at baby showers, BBQ's, pool parties and more.
Since fresh fruit is so easy to find this time of year, feel free to mix and match with whatever ripe fruits you have on hand. Fresh chopped mint and grated ginger also work really well in the yogurt dressing. Dr. Oz has a fresh fruit and vegetable calendar you can look at to see what's in season.
As always, make it your own and don't be afraid to get creative.
Your fork is waiting.
