Rainbow Fruit Skewers with dip are the perfect festive dish for any season. Use any fruit in season and serve with my Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce!
With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some rainbow themed recipes. Sure you can just eat green for the holiday, but it's a lot more fun to dive into a rainbow! These fruit skewers with dip are perfect for a festive snack or even a party.
How to make Rainbow Fruit Skewers with Dip...
My Rainbow Fruit Skewers are such a simple recipe. If you are short on time, go for some of the pre-cut fruit in the produce department. Or save the extra money and cut it yourself. Either way it's delicious.
If you are a fruit-a-holic like myself you'll love the sweet taste and burst of natural sweetness in the fruit. They are great for a summer party or even your St. Patrick's Day spread. They would also be pretty for a shower or girls brunch.
To make the dish more festive, I added a homemade light and healthy yogurt dip. It is made with protein packed Greek yogurt and flavored with honey, almond extract and cinnamon. It's a super unique and yummy combination! You can also just add the honey and fresh lime to the greek yogurt to make Honey Lime Dipping Sauce. Once again... you can't go wrong with either way. If you're feeling extra snazzy... do both.
Sure you could serve the fruit in a big bowl, but these skewers really bring out the wow factor. And sometimes food really should just be fun.
Feel free to sub out any other fresh fruit you can find, but I love this combination for a maximum impact. Enjoy!
