Yummy Apple Salad

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by DDW7976

This is another TOH from 99 and has become our family favorite. This salad will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. The original recipe calls for all green apples but I prefer the combination of both red and green. Same with the grapes - add a few red if you like. My kids don't care for nuts so I usually leave them out. This is a great fruit salad for entertaining since it makes a lot. The cooking time is chilling time after it has been prepared

This salad was an easy salad to make and the directions were very clear. I added more pineapple and did not use the pecans. I made this Apple Salad on Saturday to take to Easter lunch on Sunday. The apples did not turn brown. And the name says it all...it is Yummy! Thanks for posting this DDW!
