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.
