I had planned to make some awesome fancy dessert for my husband's homecoming. Key lime creme brule? Lemon curd pie? Something crazy chocolatey with peanut butter? But when I asked what he wanted he said fruit. "Some sort of fruit salad with a yogurt sauce" was the exact quote, I believe. I shouldn't have been so shocked. He had been living off packaged food for the most of seven months. Who wouldn't want something bright, fresh, and light? Also, it was a lot less work on my part. This is perfect for a light dessert or breakfast. Use whatever fruit you like or have on hand; this sweet yogurt dressing will go with any fruit.
1/2 C plain Greek or thick yogurt
2 Tbsp honey
zest of 1/2 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 pint strawberries, halved or quartered
1 1/2 C grapes, halved
1 lrg banana, sliced
Combine yogurt, honey, lemon juice and zest, and vanilla. Toss with fruit.
