Crunchy Apple & Grape Salad

I was craving something crunchy.

I was craving fruit.

Grapes and apples in particular.

I knew I had a crinkly recipe for an apple and grape salad hiding somewhere in one of my old recipe binders.

I dug it out, tweaked it a wee bit and made this:

Crunchy Apple and Grape Salad.

This is one salad that will give your jaw a workout. I ate it for breakfast, then had some more for lunch, then I had it again for breakfast and lunch again the next day. Then I took a break, lol.

I love the crisp crunch you get in every bite and the bits of sweetness from the nuts, with a little hint of cinnamon thrown in there.

Feel free to take this and make it your own with the fruits you are craving.

Printable Recipe
Dressing
1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
juice from 1/2 a lemon
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 granny smith apples, cored and diced
2 red delicious apples, cored and diced (I used Gala, you can use any kind you like)
1 pear, cored and diced
1 stalk celery, diced
½ cup slivered almonds
½ cup walnuts, chopped
2 cups seedless grapes, halved

Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Stick this in the fridge while you make the salad.

Once you have everything chopped up, pour the dressing over and stir gently to coat.

Refrigerate any leftovers.
