High Protein Fruit Salad

We LOVE this fruit salad. And because this is the season, it's a perfect time to give it a try! We like to have it mid-morning or sometimes as a snack before bed. It's super easy and delicious!
(This is not a picture of my fruit salad but I figured we needed a picture to get in the mood.)

2 medium apples, cored and chopped
1 1/2 cups grapes
1/2 med. fresh lemon for juice
1 cup cantaloupe, cubes or balls
3 cup low-fat cottage cheese
2 Tbs. honey
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts

Combine apples, grapes, and cantaloupe in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons honey and the juice of 1/2 fresh lemon. Toss to coat thoroughly. Add cottage cheese and mix well.
Cover and chill. Just before serving, stir and sprinkle with crushed nuts.
Hope you love it as much as we do!!!
