The idea for this recipe actually came from the Waldorf salad; I replaced the mayo with light sour cream blended with some fruit juice and Splenda, and I replaced the walnuts (because I'm allergic to them) with toasted almond slivers. I played with adding different fruits and juices to the recipe, and finally wound up with this version, which my boyfriend promptly declared to be "the BEST fruit salad. Ever." We eat it frequently! I toast my own almond slivers and pecan pieces; I buy the nuts raw at the store and just spread them out on a cookie sheet in the oven to toast them. You can use walnuts in place of either (or both) of the almonds or pecans. Also, the Fuji apples can be interchanged with any of your favorite crunchy, sweet apples, if you prefer. (This is definitely a recipe that can be "played with" a bit and tailored to fit your tastes... I change it up from time to time, so that we don't get bored with it).
