This refreshing and creamy fruit salad is a perfect side dish for any occasion. It’s packed with your favorite fruits and coated in a delicious and light creamy dressing.

Ingredients:

  • (Choose your favorites! Here are some suggestions)
    • 1 (10 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
    • 1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
    • 1 medium apple, cored and chopped
    • 1 cup grapes, halved
    • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts)
    • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
    • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
  • For the Creamy Dressing:
    • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Fruit:
    • In a large bowl, add the chopped apple and toss with lemon juice to prevent browning.
    • Add the drained pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, grapes, nuts (if using), marshmallows, and coconut (if using).
  2. Make the Creamy Dressing:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, honey, and lemon juice until smooth.
  3. Assemble the Salad:
    • Pour the creamy dressing over the fruit mixture and gently toss to coat all the pieces.
  4. Chill and Serve:
    • Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until chilled, to allow the flavors to meld together.
    • Serve cold and enjoy!

Tips:

  • For a richer dressing, use whipped cream cheese instead of Greek yogurt.
  • Want to make it extra special? Drizzle some melted chocolate or caramel sauce over the top before serving.
  • Feel free to adjust the fruit selection based on your preference. Berries, kiwi, or chopped mango would all be delicious additions!
