FRUIT SALAD WITH LIMONCELLO


This is an Ina Garten recipe:

FRUIT SALAD WITH LIMONCELLO


* 7 ounces Greek yogurt (recommended: Fage Total) - get it at Harris -Teeter!!
* 1/3 cup good bottled lemon curd- get it at Harris -Teeter!!
* 1 tablespoon honey
* 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 2 cups sliced strawberries (1 pint)
* 1 cup raspberries (1/2 pint)
* 1 cup blueberries (1/2 pint)
* 2 tablespoons sugar - you may substitute with Splenda and it's just as good
* 3 tablespoons limoncello liqueur
* 1 banana, sliced
* Fresh mint springs
Directions
For the lemon yogurt topping, whisk together the yogurt, lemon curd, honey, and vanilla and set aside at room temperature.

For the fruit salad, carefully toss together the strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sugar, and limoncello. Allow them to stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes to let the berries macerate with the sugar and liqueur. Gently fold the banana into the mixture.

Serve bowls of fruit with a dollop of lemon yogurt on top. Top each with a sprig of fresh mint.
