“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”
