Lemony Yogurt Custards with Cranberry-Apple Salad
Pastry chef Nicole Krasinski adores making desserts with yogurt. “It adds a great, unexpected tang, and you can use it to make custard without eggs.” She tops her light, panna cotta-like custards with a vivid mix of sweetened cranberries, chopped apple and fennel.
