Lemon Yogurt Fruit Salad
Lemon Yogurt Fruit Salad with a creamy honey lemon yogurt dressing with fresh lemon juice. Fresh pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and canned mandarin oranges.
- 2 cups chopped strawberries
- 2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
- 2 cups blueberries
- 4 kiwis skin peeled & chopped
- 1 can (15 oz) mandarin oranges drained well
- 1 container (6 oz) lemon yogurt
- 1 tablespoon honey
- juice of 1/2 a lemon about 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Add the strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, kiwi, and mandarin oranges into a large mixing bowl (or the bowl you're serving it in).
In a small bowl mix together the yogrt, lemon juice, and honey. Stir together well and pour over the fruit. Gently stir it all together and serve right away.
* If you are not serving this fruit salad right away then keep the fruit and yogurt dressing in separate bowls and mix together right before serving it.
I find that 1 tablespoon honey is a perfect amount. But if you prefer sweeter or your fruit is not super sweet, then increase the honey up to 2 tablespoons (more or less to taste).
To make life easier, I always buy the cut pineapple spears in the produce area of the grocery store. It's faster than cutting and trying to take the skin off of a pineapple.
2 cups of chopped strawberries is about a one (1 lb) container of strawberries.
Serve right after making this salad! If you are not serving right away or taking it somewhere, leave the fruit in one bowl and the dressing in another. Combine together right before you're ready to serve.
Make sure all the fruit is well drained. After washing the fruit, I lay it on a paper towel and then use another paper towel to dab the fruit. This helps take off any extra moisture from the fruit.
If you want extra lemon flavor, zest the lemon before juicing it. I would not add too much lemon zest, maybe like 1/4 teaspoon. Zest can be bitter so don't add too much.
