DIRECTIONS

  • Cook all of the dressing ingredients except the whipping cream in a double boiler stirring until it thickens. Take off the heat and set aside and let cool.
  • While the dressing is cooling, prepare the fruit and celery by cutting into the size pieces you like and chop the nuts.
  • When you are ready to assemble the salad, whip the cream and fold it into the dressing carefully, to make sure you keep as much volume as you can. Then mix in the fruit and nutmeats and put in the serving bowl.
  • If you are going to add bananas, do so close to serving time, so they don't turn brown. While grapes and bananas are optional, IMO they make the salad much nicer, and I've never made it without them. Don't use overly ripe bananas. Firm ones with a touch of green still on the stem, or solid yellow ones are best.
