From Good Housekeeping's web site. I like the addition of pomegranate seeds and the watercress garnish for added texture & color. An old fashioned side, updated for your holiday table.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spoon 1/2 cup mayonnaise into a large bowl; stir in juice of one lemon and add all spices. I also add a generous teaspoon of lemon zest.
  2. Cut unpeeled apples and pears into 1" chunks; cut each grape in half.
  3. Stir apples, pears, grapes and celery into dressing mixture, cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Taste salad and stir in a bit more mayonnaise if needed until fruit is well dressed.
  4. To serve, line a pretty platter with watercress. Stir cheese and nuts into fruit mixture, spoon salad over watercress and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
  5. Garnish with celery leaves or a sprig of watercress.
