    This Creamy Fruit Salad is a quick and easy side dish that is made with creamy Greek yogurt and sweetened naturally with honey!

    When I look at this salad I instantly think spring or summer. All the fresh fruit and vibrant colors instantly lift my spirits.

    A few other great salads to enjoy this summer are: Panzanella Salad with Mozzarella, Easy Greek Salad, and Old Fashioned Potato Salad.

    Yogurt Fruit Salad

    I took an old recipe for fruit salad that typically uses mayonnaise or sour cream for the dressing and lightened it up.

    I replaced it with Greek yogurt to make a super light and healthy salad. My kids love to eat fruit salad and they even eat this for breakfast! Top it with some granola and now you have a breakfast fruit salad, lol!

    It could even work as a healthy dessert option.

    Tips about Creamy Fruit Salad

    • Use whatever fruit you please. Just note the really juicy citrus fruits will prevent you from being able to make this salad to far in advance. They produce a lot of liquid and so it’s best served shortly after it’s made.
    • You can add in 1/3 cup chopped nuts or 1/2 cup toasted coconut or both.
    • You don’t have to use plain Greek yogurt. You can also try vanilla or your favorite flavored yogurt and leave out the vanilla and honey.
