    Default Black seedless grapes

    I saw these for the first time in VA last week. They are sweeter than white
    and red, and the ones I bought were HUGE. I think they will be pretty in
    fruit salad.

    I just bought a bunch the other day. They are good. The ones with seeds
    are way better - but - such a pain to eat. ;-)

    Yesterday morning, I made a fresh fruit salad with black and red
    grapes, clementines, bananas, strawberries, apples and pineapple. The
    pieces of fruit were large, with the exception of the apples, I cut
    those up way too small. What was I thinking?


    For a dressing, I nuked some cream cheese, then added a carton of sour
    cream, some sugar and a little vanilla extract. I mixed it well and
    refrigerated it. We had this after dinner and the dressing had firmed
    on the fruit and it was perfect, but I forgot to add the toasted nuts.
    Compared to most holidays, I did pretty good.

    Sounds wonderful. I love seedless grapes, orange segments, banana, and
    tartish apples with yogurt, lemon and honey dressing. Maybe kiwi, too. I
    have also used vanilla yogurt, seems you are going for the same sweet/tangy
    thing with your dressing. Fruit salad goes over really well at meals with
    heavy dishes, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's a nice contrast.

    =============================================
    If you can find it, "Greek Gods" yogurt's honey flavor - right out of
    the carton - makes a great fruit salad dressing. It is made with
    whole milk, but has less fat than cream cheese & sour cream. They
    have a pomegranate flavor that's wonderful too, but I was disappointed
    in the fig flavor. Guess I only like my figs newtoned.

    Since I have been following a low carb diet, I thought a nice fruit
    salad would be a good idea. My older son began dieting at work, the
    team who loses the highest percentage of body weight, wins (what, I
    wonder?). He only had 10 pounds to lose and the contest will be over in
    less than 3 weeks. I did not want to jeopardize his team's chances.
    Then Mr. Bill posted his coffee cake recipe and I baked that this
    morning. It is all his fault.

    On a freshly made fruit salad, the family and I prefer a plain,
    unflavoured, lowfat yogurt and I usually make my own from Easi-Yo's
    unsweetened, probiotic Bio-Life culture/base powder or use Bio Farm's
    plain, unsweetened Low Fat yogurt from the supermarket.

    I usually throw in bananas, apples, a sweet orange or few Corsica
    mandarins, red grapes, melon (honeydew or watermelon - sometimes rock
    melon if it's sweet), gold kiwifruit (much sweeter than green),
    strawberries (sometime blueberries) and - sometimes - fresh pineapple.
    Since all the fruit I use is ripe I don't add honey or sugar and the
    plain yogurt is just sour enough to provide a nice counterpoint that
    helps emphasise the natural flavours of the fruit. On the odd occasion
    I also squeeze some lemon or lime juice on the fruit and gently mix it
    through before adding the yogurt.

    Mouth watering as I write ...

    I bought that accidentally, thinking I was getting plain yogurt. I ended up
    eating it by itself, and *man* that stuff is good!
