APPLE FRUIT SALAD

I think this is a perfect fall fruit salad. It has all those flavors of fall with apples and cinnamon. Of course, any time of year is a good time of year for fruit salad. The Greek yogurt dressing isn’t too heavy and adds just the right amount of sweetness to this fruit salad (without being too sweet.) Feel free to substitute the brown sugar with honey. Creamy Cinnamon Apple Fruit Salad in a large bowl displayed with grapes and apples

HOW DO I KEEP APPLES FROM TURNING BROWN?

I’m using a (16 oz.) package of apples that are already sliced. These pre-packaged apples already have vitamin C added to keep them from turning brown quickly. I just chopped them up into thirds to make them more bite-sized. If you are using freshly chopped apples, you will want to add lemon juice or crush up some Vitamin C and sprinkle it onto your apples to keep them from turning brown.closeup, completed Apple Fruit Salad with dressing

WHY USE GREEK YOGURT? WHAT OTHER FRUITS CAN I USE?

I like to use the Greek Yogurt because it is thicker. It keeps the dressing from being too “soupy.” This dressing can go with any fruits you might enjoy. So feel free to add whatever fruits you have on hand; blueberries, strawberries, etc. Just make sure if you use any canned fruit that you don’t get the kind that is packed in heavy syrup or it will be far too sweet. You want to look for fruits that are packed in 100% juice.
