How to Spoon Peel a Kiwi
First up, how to spoon peel a kiwi. I'll let the images speak for themselves.
In case you missed that, use a brown paper bag to help ripen your kiwi. When ripe, cut off the knobby end, and then cut lengthwise. Insert spoon just underneath the skin and work back and forth until the skin is released from the fruit. Simple as that!
(Oh, and by the way, this trick also works with avocados)

Barely There Fruit Dressing Recipe
Now that you have freshly chopped fruit on hand, here is a great dressing recipe for fruit salad. This dressing is a very light and lets the fruit's natural flavor be the star. I use just enough dressing to barely coat the fruit.
I've been using this recipe for years, created out of my necessity to prevent fruit from browning when preparing fruit salad in advance. I hesitate to even call it a recipe, because until tonight, I've never even measured anything. I usually just eyeball it. (I and encourage you to do the same because it's so much quicker than actually measuring everything)
Without further ado, here's the recipe.
Simple Fruit Dressing
Chopped fruit (4 servings)
4 Tbls Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt
2 Tbls Orange Juice
A variety of fresh chopped fruit is best. Generally, I use one piece of fruit, or handful of berries, per person/serving.
Take a regular sized spoon out of your drawer and scoop four spoonfuls of yogurt into a coffee mug. Using the same spoon, pour two spoonfuls of orange juice into the mug. Stir.
Slowly pour over chopped fruit until just barely coated. (You may have extra dressing that is not needed.)
