Easy Red and Green Fruit Salad
(Easy Red and Green Fruit Salad was updated with new photos and step-by-step instructions, September 2014)
Wash grapes if needed and pat dry with paper towels. (I cut them in half if they’re big.)
I used this little pack of perfect raspberries.
Peel the kiwi and cut into bite-sized pieces.
Gently combine the fruit in a bowl.
Then stir in the desired amount of dressing and serve. That’s all!
Red and Green Fruit Salad
(Makes 4 servings, inspiration for the idea was from Kaye)
1 cup green grapes, cut in half lengthwise if they’re large
6 oz. raspberries
2 kiwi, peeled and cut in 1/2 inch pieces
6 oz vanilla yogurt (I use Kroger Carb Master yogurt, use sugar-free yogurt for the South Beach Diet)
Yogurt Dressing Ingredients:
(Use these ingredients to make fat-free Greek yogurt into a tasty dressing)
6-8 oz. plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 T light Agave Nectar (or a little more, to taste)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla (or a little more, to taste)
If you’re making the Greek yogurt dressing, combine the yogurt, agave nectar and vanilla with a whisk.
Combine ingredients with desired amount of dressing, being careful not to over mix, although some breaking apart of the raspberries will improve the flavor. Chill if desired. This will keep in the refrigerator for a day or two, although it’s best freshly made.
Other fruits you can use include blueberries, blackberries, plums, or red grapes.
Using low carb yogurt or making a low-sugar dressing with fat-free Greek yogurt will make this a suitable dish for the South Beach Diet, phase two or three. Kroger brand Carb master Yogurt has only 4 carbs and 1 1/2 grams fat in six ounces, but there are other good low carb yogurts available if you can’t find the Kroger brand. Since this salad is mostly fruit, it’s probably too high in carbs for a traditional low-carb diet plan.
