Here is a recipe I've made many times, but have never taken a photo and blogged about it. It's the simplest fruit salad, too. Just take whatever fresh fruits you have on hand, mix some vanilla yogurt in, and top it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon and some chopped walnuts. It's best when you can throw some berries in (I love strawberries in it), but the other day when I made this, I only had apples, bananas, and grapes on hand, so that's what I used. Add more fruits if you want- this amount makes enough for about 4 servings.
I like to use the vanilla Greek-style yogurt I buy in the Portuguese grocery stores for this. (So, that would be Portuguese-Greek-style yogurt. Ha ha). It's less sweet than most American yogurts, and deliciously creamy. (Um.... that could be because there's actually cream in the ingredients..... right after the full-fat milk.... don't judge me).
Yogurt Fruit Salad
adapted from Allrecipes
1 large apple, cored and diced
1 large banana, sliced
1 cup grapes, washed, drained
other fresh fruit, if available
1 cup (or more, if needed) vanilla yogurt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cups walnuts, chopped
Place the chopped fruits into a large bowl. Add the yogurt, and toss gently to coat fruit. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and walnuts, and serve.
