I have made this salad several times and am always surprised at the number of finicky skeptics that that frown at the combination of ingredients, only to taste it and find themselves asking me to make their very own bowl of this delicious salad!!! I have added a couple of ingredients to give it a bit of a savory twist: I add a little shredded sharp cheddar cheese and instead of using raisins, I add red seedless grapes. Really delicious! Thanks for this incredibly simple yet tasty fruit salad, Dawn.

i just prepared this and it is SOOOO good...thank you for the recipe....only thing I did different (apart from not using bananas) was to squirt the apples with lemon juice to keep them from oxidation...and although I am not much of a celery person, this begged for chopped celery....everything else I went by recipe- THANK YOU again.... will make it this Thanksgiving....( will also make it for next time we have a meal at church)....

I used sugar crisp apples, no raisins (didn't have any in house :) and plain yogurt instead of sour cream. it is to die for and I know will be a hit come the holidays!

I found this recipe in an Amish Recipe Cook Book. I have made this with a few items that are in this one, but not in the other one. Made this for my girls and they Loved this. I still make this for them and take it to there house for the Holidays. Now, I can add extra to this recipe this year.

I halved the recipe using 2 apples from a neighbor's apple tree, 1/2 a bos of raisins (small box), 1/4 bag of mini marshmallows, 1/2 c sugar, 1/4 c mayo, 1/4-1/2 c sour cream...I didn't use any pineapple, pecans or bananas but I did add in 1 celery stalk. It was fantastic! Just enough for me & my 3-year-old twins as a side dish with some leftover for tomorrow. Thanks for the great recipe!! Jenny :-)

This turned out really well... didn't have the pineapple - so added grapes. I just made about a half a batch. Mary

This recipe is so wonderful. Thank you! I have used it three times, and I have found that you can add lots of other fruits, grapes, mandarin oranges, pears, whatever you have on hand in addition to the other ingredients and it tastes great! :-) PS - I love honeycrisp apples, try those in this recipe.

I made this for our annual Thanksgiving dinner with the in-laws, and it was a great hit! Thanks for this easy, tasty recipe. I added 2 tbsp of honey and Gala apples instead of red delicious. The bananas and raisins didn't get mushy (at least not in 24 hours) and the apples didn't turn brown. I will make this again sometime. :)

Loved this one. I've made it twice in the past 4 days. I used Splenda, half a bag of marshmallows, and I added extra pecans. Very tasty, and fairly easy to make. Thanks!
