Delicious -- we had this as a fruit salad using strawberries, blueberries, kiwi and oranges. We will be having this often changing the fruits depending what is on hand. Thanks for sharing.

It's the end of the shopping week and all we had left was an apple and an orange. Add a handful of thawed blueberries and this is a wonderful, simple way to perk them up and make dessert fruit special. I used yogurt cheese (labaneh) for the sour cream. Great recipe, TGirl. I'll use this one frequently.
