First Fruit Salad of Summer

Tried something a little different with the dressing this time. Took low-fat plain yogurt, sweetened it with coconut cream, and added lime juice and zest, mint, and minced candied ginger. So so so good. Though the yogurt was tasty and (relatively) healthy, it did get watery in the fridge, so I'd like to try substituting cream cheese and whipping it (maybe with a little cream) for a better texture.

Baby Quiches

Awesome! You take phyllo dough, cut it into squares, and layer it with butter into muffin tins -- three or four sheets thick. Then, bake till golden brown, fill with quiche goodies, and bake again!

I made two kinds: shallot-broccoli-mustard and shallot-mushroom-thyme-white pepper-nutmeg. Jarlsberg Swiss in both. Very tasty.
