From Taste of Home. Unique salad with pear, apple, dried cranberry, swiss cheese and cashews. Also has a home made dressing.

Top Review by Julie F

This is a wonderful salad. I only made half the dressing, and just threw in approximate amounts of the other ingredients. I love the variety of flavors with all the fruits and nuts. I used dried cherries in place of the cranberries. I'll be making this whenever I want to impress!
