Tangy Waldorf Fruit Salad

The kids love yogurt. Every month we buy a box of assorted yogurt from Costco. It usually will last all month. Mason is crazy over strawberry. Adelin will only eat blueberry and Everett, well he is not picky. I have never thought to try another flavor until last month when I was volunteering in Mason’s class. The school provides the whole class with a filling snack of vegetables, a protein and fruit. This particular day they had lemon yogurt. Mason loved it. A huge shock to me. Lemon yogurt is what inspired me to try this recipe. The toasted nuts and the lemon yogurt is what makes this dish. It is a perfect side for a baby shower or casual gathering. Serve in martini glasses for an elegant presentation.
