Recipe: Not Your Grandma's Fruit Salad

Spring is here and the best fruit is coming back in season.  This isn't your grandma's fruit salad with the canned fruit cocktail.  Although I admit, as a kid I used to pick out the cherries out of that bowl before anyone could get to it first.  I can't wait to try this recipe out with fresh blackberries, raspberries, and peaches!
Ingredients:
2 bananas
2 pears
2 apples
1 pint of strawberries
1/2 cup of golden raisins
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/2 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
sprinkle of granola on top

Core and dice the apple and pear.  Don't bother pulling out your apple corer, just use this simple tutorial and you'll never use that thing again.  Cut the core off the apple by squaring around the core.  Simple! Then you will have a flat surface on the apple pieces to easily dice them into 1/2" squares.

Cut the strawberries in half and slice up the bananas. Add the raisins, condensed milk, and sour cream.  I know, sour cream sounds weird but it is actually a nice balance between the tart and the sweet condensed milk.  It also gives the milk something to hold on to.  If it's too weird to put sour cream on fruit instead of the regular 'ol potato go ahead and use greek yogurt.

Mix. Serve. Sprinkle granola on top of each serving.  I like to use Kashi or the Trader Joe's brand. Enjoy!
