Farm Fresh: Honey-cinnamon dressing crowns sublime fruit salad

Thursday, July 01, 1999

Short and sweet -- that's the summer fruit season. Each fruit has its window of peak flavor and then it's gone. In order to enjoy all these wonderful fruits before they're gone, try the fruit salad below.

Sweet Summer Salad is not just fruit tossed together. The dressing of yogurt, honey and cinnamon makes all the difference.

But we do suggest you serve the salad immediately. Because of the high water content of the watermelon, the salad ends up soupy if it sits too long in the refrigerator.

Once this salad makes it to the dinner table or buffet board, don't count on leftovers. It is easily doubled for large quantities.

Sweet Summer Salad

2 cups plain nonfat yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pint strawberries, halved
2 peaches, peeled, sliced
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 pint blueberries
2 cups cherries
2 cups watermelon, cubed

In a large bowl, combine yogurt, honey, cinnamon and mix well. Toss in the fruit with the sauce.

Serve each portion garnished with a strawberry half.
