This creamy, festive, fruit salad makes a great appetizer or sidedish. With apple season here and holidays on the horizon, this dish makes a great addition to any menu.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

FOR THE DRESSING:

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

FOR THE SALAD:

4 apples, cored and diced*

1 lb. seedless grapes, red, green or both

1 cup dried cherries, cranberries, golden raisins, or combination of each

1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped and divided into 3/4 cup for salad and 1/4 cup for topping

1/2 cup shaved coconut, for topping

*I used Gala, Pink Lady, Granny Smith and Honey Crisp but any crisp, tart variety will do.

HOW YOU'LL MAKE IT

Dressing: In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy, about 2 - 3 minutes.

Salad: In a large bowl, combine apples, grapes, dried fruit, and 3/4 cup nuts. Add the dressing and toss to coat.Refrigerate at least 3 hours. When ready to serve, top with extra nuts and coconut.

Enjoy!
