Ingredients

  • 2 apples
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 seedless orange
  • 1/4 cup maraschino cherries cut in half
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons non-fat plain yogurt

Instructions

  1. Peel and core the apples, cut into bite-sized pieces, and place pieces in a large bowl.
  2. Peel and cut bananas into 1/3-inch slices. Add slices to the bowl.
  3. Cut off the outside peel and pith of the orange. Cut the orange flesh into bite-sized pieces over the bowl so the juice and flesh pieces drop into the bowl while cutting.
  4. Add cherries, pecans, lemon juice, sugar, and 2 tablespoons of yogurt to the bowl. Gently stir to combine. Add more yogurt if desired for a creamier dressing.
  5. Serve immediately.
