Nothing canned here! Use fresh fruit, nuts, and organic vanilla yogurt (very important! - it's less sweet than other yogurt). A dash of cinnamon really adds that special something. Quick and delicious!

Great way to have fruit in the morning -- even my husband loved it! A squeeze of lemon juice over the fruit when they're first cut keeps them from browning (if the salad is going to be saved for more than a few hours) and adds a nice tang to the salad. Wonderful recipe! Read More

I made 1/2 recipe to try this. I found I like fruit with just a tad of yogurt mixed in to not mask it. This was just a few too many textures in one. The apple texture really didn't work for me either. The walnuts gave it a nice contrasting flavor. I also thought the cinnamon definitely improved it flavor wise. I made it for a lunch and I am sure it will all get eaten just not a repeat fruit salad recipe. Read More

So good and so healthy!:) The different textures are wonderful! I would advise not letting sit for very long before serving as it looks the best just mixed. Read More

Very good basic recipe that you can easily adjust. Due to allergies and my personal dislike of bananas I used blueberries and strawberries. Again because of allergies I used granola in lieu of the walnuts. Yum Bridestein and thanks for a great lunch today! Read More

We loved this! I've not used cinnamon as a spice in fruit salad before and it was aromatic and scrumptious. I used fresh pineapple red grapes and bananas and added some lemon juice and a little brown sugar. Read More

I thought this was awesome. i made mine with blackberries raspberries strawberries apples bananas and walnuts. i would definitely make this again. i love the idea of granola in it too. The only thing i would do different is cutting up the fruit the day of the brunch and not the day before. the fruits did get a bit soft overnight and by the next night there was a good bit of liquid at the bottom of the bowl.

I thought this recipe was fantastic. I used it several times for company parties and it was a hit every time. I did use a different types of fruits like honeydew and canteloupe and it worked just as wonderful. Thank you. I will definitely use over and over again! Read More

I really liked this fruit salad. It was yummy light and tasty. I used Nancy's fat free vanilla yogurt. Wasn't organic but they do have an organic line. Nancy's is a lot less sweet than other yogurts and I love it. My store didn't have strawberries so I used black grapes (left whole) and they were perfect in here. I don't love bananas but I loved them in this. I sprinkled the walnuts on top of the salad and used about half of what is listed. The cinnamon was a great touch! I took this over to a friend's house for dinner and they liked it too. Read More

Simple and very good. Easy to adjust for fruits that are in season and personal likes/dislikes. I did not use organic yogurt and it turned out great. Read More
