If you’re looking for a new way to entice your family to eat their fruits and vegetables, these salad parfaits may do the trick. They are pretty to look at and even better to taste!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (6 oz.) baby spinach
  • 4 cups assorted fruit, cut into bite-size pieces (i.e. banana, orange, apple, kiwi fruit, blackberries, strawberries etc.)
  • Poppy Seed Dressing (recipe below)
  • Toasted walnuts

Poppy Seed Dressing

  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. poppy seed
  • Whisk together all ingredients until blended.
  • Makes about 1 cup.

Instructions

  • Alternate layers of spinach and fruit in four goblets or glass bowls. Drizzle with Poppy Seed Dressing. Garnish with toasted Walnuts. It’s worth the effort to toast them — just 5 minutes in a 350 oven. It really brings out the flavor.
