    Gr8 ! I have apples and cherries ! Will try this out ASAP. Is there a reason you peeled the apple ? I love apple with its skin on but will it be bad in this salad ?

    Hello IG, I remember reading that apples are one of the pesticide heavy crops in the market, my reason for peeling the skin. But, in general skins are good and nutrient rich.
    Let me know how you like this salad if you try. Thanks.

    you just reminded me how simple and lovely indian dishes can be. for me, the salt & pepper takes this dish to another time and place as even that simple pairing is something you rarely see in american cooking. thanks!

    I love how you present food with the main ingredients nestled in each other! Salt and pepper to the yogurt is a great idea, bet it brings out all the sweet juiciness of the fruits.

    Indira, You did GREAT! I sent you an email. I would avoid ragi(grain) and cherries (has more sugar) just for these two weeks. Stock on different kind of nuts too. They make a great snack. :)

    we have apples, we have cherries (got them in bulk at a local shop where they sell in bulk to restaurant people),
    i always happen to have home made yogurt….thanks for the idea,kind of got bored eating just the fruit, esp. cherries….apples i love them with a dip in smooth peanut butter…..so i am going to make your salad today….looks soo wonderful.

    I dont know why – I am just on onto fruit salads. Give me 5 different fruits- will munch it up – but mix them as one, I cant take it!

    I thought you that you are eating too less (about 600-800 calories, when actually you should be having around 1200 cals atleast), in which case your metabolism may drop and you will have a hard time maintaining weight.
