Spring is here. My peonies have come out of the ground. I was so happy to see them! I can't wait until they bloom.
I carried white peonies down the aisle. My bridesmaids carried pink peonies down the aisle. Our groomsmen wore the nearly-opened buds of pink peonies on their tuxes.
Do I even need to tell you that it was beautiful.
And so it's only fitting that we have an entire row of pink peonies in our front yard. I think we have 11 right now, which is perfect because our 11th anniversary is approaching. I may need to add more this year.
I may cover my entire yard with them.
Anyway. On to this fruit salad. It was very fresh and springy and I ate an entire bowl of it for dinner because I was uninterested in the actual meal I had prepared for my family.
Should I blame my strange behavior on pregnancy? Hormones? Maybe I was tired? Maybe I had done laundry that day. I could keep going with my list of excuses but it doesn't really matter.
Who knows. Who cares. This fruit salad was delicious and a big hit. Will make it again. You should too.
Fruit Salad with Yogurt Poppyseed Dressing
8 cups cut-up fruit (I used a combo of oranges, bananas, strawberries, apples & grapes)
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (I used fat-free)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup honey
1 T sugar
1 T poppyseeds
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Toss the fruit together in a bowl. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the fruit about 20 minutes before serving.
