Growing up, fruit salad came from a can. It was an unimpressive syrupy side dish reserved for school lunches and Chinese food buffets. I continued to feel this way into adulthood,until a couple of years ago when a friend's mother made us a delicious fruit salad made with peak of the season fruits and vanilla yogurt. I had never heard of yogurt in fruit salad before and I couldn't help but try it,and love it!
My autumn version involves apples and pears, seedless grapes, mandarin orange segments and chopped pecans. And just enough vanilla yogurt to coat everything. It's a favorite in our house as a breakfast, a dessert, or even a simple lunch!.
