Frosted Orange Ginger Fruit Salad

 

Description

For the same reasons this fruit salad makes a great breakfast, it also makes a great snack. It is light, naturally sweetened, and smothered in a smooth yogurt and ginger topping. Often, we find ourselves so busy that we quickly grab less-healthy foods to satisfy us. Make this ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, or take it to work in a covered container.

 

 

Ingredients

2 cups washed and sliced fresh strawberries

2 cups grapes

1 cup washed, cored, and diced apples

3 oranges, peeled, seeded, and cubed

1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from the 3 peeled, seeded, and cubed oranges)

1 cup plain low-fat yogurt (optional)

1/2 cup chopped crystallized ginger

2 tablespoons honey

 

GARNISH

12 sprigs mint

 

 

Instructions

Toss all the fruit together in a medium bowl.

Whisk the orange juice, yogurt, ginger, and honey in a separate bowl. Pour the dressing over the fruit. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to marry the flavors.

Spoon the coated fruit into 12 small dessert dishes or parfait glasses. Garnish each with a sprig of mint.
