Classic fall flavors make this simple fruit-based recipe a just-right dessert or even a brunch side dish. The yogurt topping is delicious and takes just minutes to prepare! This light fruit dessert is great served warm, at room temperature, or chilled, so it’s ideal for making ahead. Both the fruit and the yogurt will keep refrigerated up to 3 days; you can reheat the fruit in the microwave for a warm version.
