Fruit and nuts yogurt salad/raita/dip

Fruit and nut salad

About:

The simplicity of fresh fruit, dry nuts with plain yogurt makes so refreshing on a hot summer day. More than the salad this can be a great accompaniment and this makes a great snack that you can dig in whenever you crave for some healthy dessert.

Serving nuts with yogurt and fruits adds fat to your diet to help you feel satisfied. Nuts contain healthy unsaturated fat as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which fight cardiovascular disease. Eating nuts also helps with weight management and combats type 2 diabetes. Walnuts are a particularly rich source of omega-3 fatty acids while almonds provide fiber

  6. The yogurt is also very good for you, with all of its healthy microbes. I’m going to try roasting and grinding my flax seeds like you suggest here. They are impossible to grind raw. I hadn’t thought of roasting them first. That should do the trick. Thanks for the ideas.

  12. Oh Darling Chitra, This yogurt dish brings so many fond memories. As you may know, we/Iranians make many yogurt side-dishes too, and one just like this one, except traditionally we don’t use using seasoning other than salt and pepper. I love the Indian yogurt dishes because of the using spices such as cumin. Yum! Beautifully presented. 😛
