2 cups fat-free cottage cheese
1 container (6 oz) strawberries 'n bananas yogurt
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted if desired
6 cups cut-up fresh fruit (peaches, nectarines, pears, bananas, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries and/or blueberries)
In medium bowl, stir together cottage cheese and yogurt. Stir in pecans.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
You can use 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free yogurt (any fruit flavor) instead of the yogurt in the recipe if you like.
To toast pecans, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.
