It’s a Groupon coupon day!
We probably wouldn’t have chosen to drive to Ballard today and have a second lunch at The Counter, but when I bought the first coupon way back in … what was it, November? … I actually bought two. And that second one expires tomorrow. So rather than let it go to waste, we’re off to Ballard.
Last time, I got a make-up-your-own burger. This time, I think I’ll do the burger-in-a-bowl. Either way, though, I’ll be eating lighter later. So I thought I’d mix up my favorite fruit salad.
NOTE: THIS SALAD WOULD HAVE GRAPES IF AN UNNAMED SOMEONE HADN’T FOUND AND DEVOURED THE ONES I HAD STORED IN MY SECRET PLACE IN THE FRIDGE.
Oh, how I long to have a refrigerator in my bedroom. Am I the only one who wants to cry when I’ve tucked away the ingredients for a recipe only to find them gone when I need them? I know. In light of the world’s real problems, this seems insignificant. Except that it happens so regularly that it’s become my biggest pet peeve. Maybe Dave will let us refrigerator-shop while we’re out …
My Favorite Fruit Salad
- 2 Granny Smith apples
- 1 cup grapes
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 2 TBSP sliced almonds
- 1 6oz container Yoplait Light Very Vanilla yogurt
I really like this yogurt for this fruit salad, but if you’re not counting WW PointsPlus, what’s even better is honey-vanilla Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is so much thicker and creamier … have you tried it yet?
If you want to substitute dried cherries for the dried cranberries, those are great too. 1/3 cup dried cranberries has 3 WW PP; 1/4 cup dried cherries has 4 WW PP. Your call.
Chop the apples and add to everything else. Hopefully, YOU HAVE GRAPES AT YOUR HO– USE.
And here you go … a very addicting fruit salad. Even more so with grapes. Sigh.
The entire bowl has 8 WW PointsPlus.
