It’s summertime! It’s party time! It’s picnic time! It’s (almost) Fourth of July time! It’s time to make this Berry-Cantaloupe Salad with Honey-Vanilla Yogurt Dip and bring it to your next shindig.
If you like to ride the lazy train, as I do, this salad is just for you. Why? Because it takes like five seconds to put together, and in half an hour (which can be spent taking a nap), you’ve got a totally tasty, totally party and picnic-worthy fresh fruit salad with a creamy yogurt dip on the side.
And guess what? It’s all healthy, too – so if you accidentally eat the whole thing on your way to the party, you don’t have to feel guilty about it. Well, at least about the health part (you might get the stink-eye walking in with an empty bowl. Just sayin’).
ANYWAY, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s make salad!
Here is everything you need to make this delish dish: Some blueberries, blackberries and half a cantaloupe; fresh mint leaves, ginger and lime; some sugar, cinnamon and honey; and last but certainly not least, a couple containers of creamy vanilla-flavored Yoplait Greek 100 yogurt.
Use a melon baller to scoop the cantaloupe, or cut the whole thing into 1-inch slices.
Place the melon in a large bowl along with the berries, the sugar, the grated ginger and lime zest and the lime juice. Toss everything together to combine and set aside at room temperature for about a half-hour (something about the room temperature-ness of the salad really makes those flavors sing!).
Meanwhile, mix together all the fixins for the yogurt dip: the yogurt (duh), honey and cinnamon.
When you’re ready to serve it all up, top both the salad and the yogurt dip with snipped fresh mint leaves.
Ta-da! You made a salad. It’s a mighty fine, mighty tasty salad. Try not to eat the whole salad on your way to the party, mmk? No one likes a salad hog.
