Summer is in full swing which means easy and refreshing snacks is the name of the game. It doesn’t get much easier than this summer fresh fruit salad with honey yogurt dip. A handful of ingredients plus your favorite summer fruit and you are on your way to a delicious lunch or afternoon snack. The great thing about this recipe is that it tastes great with whatever fruit you like to eat. Not a fan of pineapple or mango? Simply eliminate it from the recipe and add your favorite fruit.
If you are adding strawberries add them right before serving to keep the other fruit from absorbing the red color. You’ll want to add the kiwi right before serving as well to prevent it from browning.

For additional sweetness, drizzle mixture with honey and gently stir to combine, if desired.
