I love limoncello, a taste thrill from Italy. Limoncello is a liqueur made from lemons and grain alcohol or vodka. Don’t let the ingredients scare you. It has the best lemon flavor for desserts and champagne cocktails. I’m not kidding. Two of my most favorite things……lemon desserts and champagne. I must stay true to my Champagne Girl status.
If there is a dessert made with limoncello on the menu, I will order it, no matter what I have just eaten for dinner. Most times I take a couple of bites, then, pass the dessert around the table. It usually makes it into a to go box for a little snack the next day.
Here is a simple and delicious version of a fruit salad. I used blueberries, strawberries, and banana. You could add blackberries and raspberries in the mix as well. The fruit is macerated in a limoncello and sugar mixture. Just before serving, top with the creamy yogurt and lemon curd mixture. A refreshing end to a lazy Sunday afternoon supper.
