Pineapple & Ginger Yogurt Sauce

This quick dessert ginger yogurt sauce was something I came across on Martha Stewart’s site. I really loved it especially after I tried it for myself. You can actually try it on any fruit you like or even combine fruits; then it would be more like a fruit salad with sauce. I enjoyed the way the tartness of the ginger combines with the sweetness of the pineapple. You could pair the ginger yogurt sauce with other sweet fruits like mangoes, apples and pears.
