Fruity Dip Recipe

"Your guests are sure to have fun guessing what's in this dip-it has such a variety of flavors," say Phyllis Shaughnessy of Livonia, New York. "In addition to fruit, you can serve it with fresh veggies or herbed crackers."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:11 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup 100% apricot fruit spread

  • 2 cups (16 ounces) lemon yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted, divided
  • Assorted fresh fruit

Directions

  • 2. In a bowl, combine the fruit spread, marmalade, almond extract and chopped grapefruit. Stir in yogurt. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • 3. Set aside 1 tablespoon almonds. Chop remaining almonds. Just before serving, stir chopped almonds into dip. Spoon into reserved grapefruit shells. Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Serve with fruit. Yield: 2-3/4 cups.
