This recipe reminds me of the old "dinner on the ground" picnics from church during my childhood! It is a fruit version of the ever popular 7-Layer Salad. It should be made at least 8 hours ahead of time. It features oranges, apples and grapes atop a bed of shredded lettuce. Prep time and cooking time does not include the 8 hour chilling time!

  1. Place the shredded lettuce in a deep 2-quart glass serving bowl.
  2. Peel and section the oranges over a bowl, reserving the juice. Combine apple slices and orange juice; toss to coat. Layer apple slices over the lettuce; top with the orange sections and grapes.
  3. Combine mayonnaise and sour cream in a small bowl; stir well. Spread mayonnaise mixture over salad, sealing to the edge of the bowl. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
