Yogurt Fruit Salad

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.
