Fruit Dip

We went to a Christmas brunch yesterday at a family friends house, and our contribution was to be a fruit salad. I am not a huge fruit salad fan as I think they always taste mushy. I looked briefly on the internet for a fruit salad recipe but I couldn't find anything that sounded appealing. Scott suggested doing a fruit tray with dip. What a clever man!

We did grapes, pineapple, apple and banana. The banana was sliced at the last minute to keep it from going mushy.

We made a fruit dip to go alongside.

1 cup raspberries
1 cup light dessert topping
1 small container (approx 175 g/6 oz) raspberry yogurt
1/2 tsp or to taste ground ginger

Place the berries in a bowl and mash with a potato masher. Stir in the yogurt and topping. Add ground ginger to taste. Serve with fruit.
