Paul's Ambrosia

Ingredients
  Cottage cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Ricotta cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Yogurt 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cinnamon 2 Teaspoon
  Ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cardamom 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Nutmeg 1 Teaspoon
  Honey 1 Teaspoon
  Cheese cubes 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), diced into 1/4 inch pieces
  Apple 1 , diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  Orange 1 , diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  Cantaloupe 1 Cup (16 tbs), diced into 1 inch cubes (May Use Cantaloupe / Honeydew / Persian Melon)
  Pear 1 , diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  Bananas 2 , sliced
  Brewer's yeast 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Wheat germ 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Directions

Stir the cottage cheese, ricotta, and yogurt together in a small bowl. Stir in all of the spices. If I am going to serve the Ambrosia for dessert I use the larger amounts of spices. (Add the optional honey to the dressing now, too.)
Prepare the cheese and fruits and toss them gently in a serving bowl. Pour the cheese and yogurt mixture over; sprinkle with brewer's yeast and wheat germ. Toss again.
Refrigerate the salad until you're ready to serve.
