Cooking:

To start with, thoroughly wash all the fruit that will be used (better to wash them with boiling water, it will help you remove the skin if you need to), then cut them in pieces so that several pieces fitted into a spoon. If you cut the grapes, your salad will be very juicy, but it can spoil faster. Before dressing it with yoghurt, shake the bottle well.

If you would like something additional, put a few spoons of jam or honey. It is also a good idea to put some flakes.

Decorate it with a mint leaf.

Enjoy!
