Pineapple Grapefruit Salad
This sweet-tart salad, nicely coated with a yogurt dressing, makes a refreshing light luncheon dish. "I usually put a scoop of low-fat cottage cheese in the center of the plate and surround it with the salad," writes Rosemarie Kondrk of Old Bridge, New Jersey.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
