pork and fruit 016

At the grocery store last week I impulsively started grabbing whatever produce looked good (aka in season and inexpensive). Straying from my list resulted in creating this beautiful and so easy fruit salad when I got home. The gingerbread spiced yogurt is seasonal and accents the dish wonderfully.

This one is so versatile it can be served at breakfast, brunch, as a side, snack or lighter dessert. Try topping with heart-healthy granola or chopped almonds for crunch. Quick and simple make ahead for company and visiting family this week. The yogurt can double as a dip for fruit platters or topping for pancakes, so go crazy and make extra.

Gluten-free friends enjoy as well!
