Fruit and Yogurt Salad

Contributing Editor Kelsey Casselbury’s March 2018 Food Focus really spreads on the jam. Using recipes with both grapes and raisins, Casselbury is able to suffuse excitement and whimsy into traditional dishes, like Sloppy Joes and tacos. Use this recipe for Fruit and Yogurt salad as another fun way to incorporate grapes into your menu—your students will be eternally grape-ful!

Kitchen Wisdom Says...

  • Nice combination of vegetables and fruits with the salad. The vegetables are mild, so they wouldn’t over-power the fruits.
  • If the students don’t like the vegetables with the fruits, they could be served on the side of the salad.
  • This recipe was trying to be everything to everybody and lacked focus. It just has too many parts to it.
