What a great fruit salad recipe! It combines crisp, fresh fruit with crunchy almonds (which are loaded with vitamin E and Magnesium).

Fragrant spices and creamy, calming yogurt are mixed throughout. What more could you want in a healthy salad that seems more like a treat then a side dish?

If desired raisins could be added as well as other nuts, such as walnuts and pecans.

2 red delicious apples
1 sliced banana
1 Granny Smith apple
2 bartlett pears
1/2 pound red grapes
1/2 cup almond slivers, toasted
1 cup vanilla yogurt

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 Tablespoon apple cider
