I like fruit salads and I liked this one. I liked the addition of cheese. The dressing is best sweet. Recommended as a breakfast, a lunch or a dessert, but can also be used as a side to the main course with less sweetening. The larger amounts of spices are intended for a sweet version.
1/3 cup cottage cheese
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup yogurt
1 1/2-2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4-1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4-1/2 tsp. cardamom
1/8-1/2 tsp. cloves
honey to taste (optional)
1/2 cup cheese cubes diced into 1/4” pieces
1 apple, diced into 1/2” pieces
1 orange diced into 1/2” pieces
1 cup melon (canteloupe, honeydew, other of your choice) cut into 1” cubes
1 pear diced into 1/2” pieces
1 1/2-2 bananas, sliced
1/4 cup brewer’s yeast
1/3 cup wheat germ
In a small bowl, combine ricotta and cottage cheese with yogurt. Add spices. Add honey if using.
Put cheese cubes and diced fruit in a larger bowl and toss gently.
Pour dressing over fruit.
Sprinkle with brewer’s yeast and wheat germ.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
