      Isn't it amazing how you can cut up some fruit (or veggies) for your kids and they are so disappointed with their snack...but put it in a cute dish, add a few berries, and they think they are in for a real treat!  I can't say I blame then, but for some reason presentation seems to have  an impact on how good it "tastes".

       

      I am so excited to see the beginnings of summer as I walk through my local grocery stores.  After a long winter, it puts such a smile on my face to see things like blueberries and raspberries on sale in the grocery ads.

       

      Here is a recipe for a very simple fruit salad.  I rarely use yogurt of any, but decided to use a little Greek yogurt for this one.  For a vegan variety, you could substitute soy yogurt or even a little orange juice concentrate.

       

      FRESH FRUIT SALAD (serves 4)

      1 apple, chopped

      1 banana, chopped

      1 mango, chopped

      1 cup sliced strawberries

      1/2 cup blueberries

      1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt, or ideally Soy Yogurt

      2 TBS honey

      Mix all ingredients in a bowl and that's it....a beautiful salad, or afternoon snack.  I opted to top each serving with a few raspberries.

       

      (The mango I used was on the very ripe side, so it kind of blended with the yogurt to make a bit of a "sauce"....still absolutely delicious.
