Summer Desserts: Fruit Salad with Limoncello

Here is a delicious, healthy & quick summer dessert.

I skipped the limoncello and sugar on the berries and just made the lemony yogurt dip which was delicious!

Fruit Salad with Limoncello
Barefoot Contessa

  • 7 ounces Greek yogurt (recommended: Fage Total)
  • 1/3 cup good bottled lemon curd
  • 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
  • 3 tablespoons limoncello liqueur
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • Fresh mint springs

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.
