This simple-to-prepare Strawberry Sauce is especially great using the first fresh berries of the season. In addition to kiwis, I like to use it on other fruits like pineapple, sliced peaches, or pears as well as on crepes, pancakes, and hot cereal. Make this as a snack for yourself or multiply the recipe to serve your family or friends at brunch this weekend.

For the kiwi

½ cup vanilla yogurt (or substitute ice cream or frozen yogurt)

1 kiwi, peeled and cut in half lengthwise, each half cut into ¼-inch slices

For the sauce

¼ cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
½ teaspoon honey
Dash of ground nutmeg

To complete the recipe

Sprigs of fresh mint for garnish

Spoon the vanilla yogurt into a dessert bowl and top with the kiwi slices. Puree all of the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour over the kiwi and yogurt.
