This colorful, ginger-spiced fruit salad makes a delightful brunch side or light dessert. Because the mix contains banana, be sure to serve immediately. For an extra treat, use half the compote to make frozen fruit cups that you can enjoy another day.


  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped crystallized ginger (optional)
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups seedless red or green grapes, halved
  • 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple (juice pack), undrained
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 large banana, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup finely snipped pitted dates
  • Plain Greek yogurt


  1. For dressing: In a small bowl, combine orange peel, orange juice, and, if you like, crystallized ginger.
  2. For salad: In a large bowl, combine strawberries, grapes, undrained pineapple, blueberries, banana, and dates. Add dressing; toss gently to evenly coat.
  3. If you like, reserve half of the fruit compote to make Frozen Fruit Cups (see Step 5)
  4. Divide the remaining fruit mixture among small serving bowls. Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
  5. Frozen Fruit Cups: In a medium bowl, combine reserved fruit compote and 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt. Spoon mixture into 8 paper bake-cup-lined 2 1/2-inch muffin cups. Cover and freeze until firm. Let stand at room temperature 20 to 30 minutes before serving. Peel off paper cups to serve.
