Summer, with all its bounty of fruit, is a great time to make this chock-full-of-fruit salad. It’s got plenty of vitamins, fiber, protein from the yogurt and oils from the nuts to give you energy for the entire afternoon.
Don’t want it for lunch? Serve it as a side with dinner for a well-rounded meal.
And, don’t tell anyone, but the nuts are a great snack to have all by themselves!
