Berry Fruit Salad – and super easy fruit salad recipe loaded with fresh berries and topped with a lemon yogurt to make it tart and sweet!
In the summer I love just about anything with fresh berries. It can be a Strawberry Cheesecake Lasagna that is a delicious no bake dessert or it can be just snacking on fresh strawberries. It really doesn’t matter.
Every summer we pick strawberries from our garden and make Strawberry Shortcake with them. Those super sweet berries are always reserved for that special day. But this year we have a raspberry plant as well, so this berry fruit salad is going to be made even more often.
The fruit salad dressing for this is a lemon yogurt that is absolutely delicious. You can mix it all together and serve it like a creamy fruit salad, or you can just put a dollop on top of the berries when you serve. The fruit salad dressing starts with plain yogurt and you add lemon curd, vanilla, and a little bit of honey to make the most delicious yogurt ever!
This is such an easy fruit salad recipe to make. The berries are really the star of the show, so just pick up the freshest berries you can find. You can switch up the berries if you want, leave out the raspberries if you aren’t a fan, and add in blackberries. You could even slice up a banana if you wanted. It is your fruit salad, so do what you want with it.
How to Make Fruit Salad
- Start with the freshest berries. They will be the sweetest and not need very much extra sugar to make the salad come together.
- Slice the strawberries and mix everything together.
- Add a little bit of sugar and lemon juice to bring out all the juices of the berries and make them extra sweet and delicious.
- If you have limoncello this is an amazing time to break it out. Use it in place of the lemon juice to make it extra special.
- Mix together the yogurt, honey, lemon curd, and vanilla for your dressing.
- Scoop berries into a bowl and top with lemon yogurt.
- You can also mix everything together and serve as a creamy fruit salad if you like.
Sometimes coming up with side dishes in the summer can be hard. I mean everyone loves a good Potato Salad, but you don’t always want it to be heavy and full of mayo. So this berry fruit salad is great to make for a crowd. It is light and fresh and could even double as a dessert and is great for brunch get togethers as well.
This easy fruit salad recipe is sure to become a hit with your family. And the lemon yogurt just might be your next snack, breakfast, and everything in between it is so good!
