Sasha's Kitchen: Impromptu Fruit Salad with Yogurt and Almonds

My little pug, Dakota loves fruit. Everytime I make anything that involves peeling fruit, she runs over thinking it is time for a snack because she knows that I have a soft spot for giving her fresh fruits. She loves just about all the fruits that went into this impromptu fruit, yogurt and nut salad, so when I make this, I always have a little pug beggar around. If she wasn't so cute that might be a problem!

At any rate, this salad takes just a few minutes to make and is quite possibly the healthiest thing you could make for lunch. I made this after I received some smoked almonds in a shipment of fabulous nuts, courtesy of ShopRite, and decided to try them out with some of my favorite fruits. The smoked almonds are great - really addictive even on their own, but perfect with a mix of fruit, yogurt and a bit of cinnamon. This is a very simple lunch, so feel free to change the fruits depending on what you prefer, and what is in season. Just combine the ingredients below, top with a bit of cinnamon and enjoy!
