“Cheese sauce”

Combine the yogurt, honey and turmeric using a whisk.

Cover and let rest overnight in the fridge (the turmeric will turn the yogurt yellow).


Clean and trim the strawberries.

Cut the strawberries into a small dice (about ¼ inch pieces)

Zest the lemon using a zester or a cheese grater.

Wash and roughly chop the mint (leaves only).

Combine the strawberries, lemon zest, mint and pistachios.

Cover and let rest in the fridge for one hour.

To assemble:

Peel the kiwis and cut them into bite-sized pieces.

Pile the apple chips on a plate or serving dish.

Drizzle the “cheese sauce” over the apple chips.

Garnish the top of the nachos with dollops of the “salsa,” blueberries and kiwis.

Serve immediately.
