11 Fruit Salad - Easter Special

11 Fruit Salad - Easter Special
Serves: 12+

For this recipe, which I was bestowed upon to bring to Easter dinner this year - I wanted to make sure it was especially delicious! I put my own subtle changes to the classic Easter staple we have at my Aunts each year.

I bought 1 pint of each fruit:

  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Strawberries - Sliced
  • Raspberries
  • Cantaloupe - Melon Balled
  • Honey Dew - Melon Balled
  • Grapes - Mixed variety - Sliced Lengthwise
  • Pineapple - Cut into small chunks
Then I purchased 3 kiwi (sliced into half moons) and two 14oz cans of mandarin oranges.

Place all fruit in large bowl and chiffinade (make ribbons) of about 5-6 mint leaves and cover with plastic wrap. In the meantime I took 1/2 a  large container of Fage total greek yogurt (plain flavor) and mixed it with 2 smashed bananas, 1 tablespoon honey and the juice of one lime.

Chill fruit and drain any accumulated liquid before serving, gently fold in yogurt mixture when ready to eat.
