I use one 6 oz. container of lowfat yogurt instead of the pudding.  It is a fresh changed and the Vanilla yogurt blends all the wonderful fruit flavors together without over powering them.  Delicious!

Fruit salad is my favorite brunch dish which I never get bored of. But I want to ask can I ask pomegranate seeds to this recepie of yours?


You can use any mix of fruit with this recipe which is great for using what you already have on hand.
