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.
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.
