      This was excellent. I had pears and apples on the skewer . When I placed it on the plate I added some rasberries and gooseberries. The yogurt was nice and the nuts and honey perfect.The nut mixture would be good on ice cream and also oatmeal lol.Made for ZWT4 for the chic chefs.

      I love this with all of the components, made as written. A great keeper and I can translate this to Morocco as well. A grand slam Rita, thank you! Now THERE is American excess for you; a yogurt cheese maker!! hehehehe!

      I truly enjoyed this one, light and flavorful. Have to confess, my favorite component may have been the nuts. Toasty and sweet I used my extras on a spinach salad as well as for nibbling. Though I did not use Greek yogurt, I did the requisite straining in my yogurt cheese maker. I grilled both apples and peaches for my dessert. Though I found the combination of both honey and balsamic vinegar a bit too much, I loved the apples with the honey and the peaches with the vinegar. This is probably one of these things where you should plate the yogurt fruit and nuts and let each diner add their own honey, mint and vinegar according to their palate. Looking forward to making this again for a crowd in the summer. Thanks Rita.
