Recipe of the Week: Green Treasure Salad

I saw grapes on sale this weekend at the grocery and thought it was time for this easy dessert recipe. This one comes from The Network for a Healthy California Orange County Coalition (formerly The California Nutrition Network Orange County Coalition)

Green Treasure Salad
1 cup grapes (green, seedless)
1 green apple, chopped
½ cup miniature marshmallows
½ cup nonat lemon-flavored yogurt
2 T slivered almonds

Makes about 2 servings.. double or triple the recipe for more of course.

Mix together the grapes, apple pieces, marshmallows, yogurt, and almonds.
Serve in small bowl

This yummy dessert is a good source of fiber, calcium vitamin C and adds a nice dose of needed potassium. I suppose you could also make this an afternoon snack. If you don’t plan to serve it right away, add the almonds in just before serving. Otherwise they get a little soggy.
