Sweet Granny Salad

Submitted by: BLUEJEM

Introduction

A sweet fruit salad named after the apple it features. As long as you can get hold of nice fresh grapes you can make this salad. This serves two as a side, or one as a meal. It’s not a fussy recipe and is easily adjustable to taste. As long as the apples are well coated in yogurt they don’t brown. I make big batches to take to family get-togethers. (To make a big batch use 6-8 Apples, a cup or so of halved grapes, a cup or so of walnuts and almost a whole 32 ounce container of yogurt.) Other apples work as well, though I love the tart crisp Granny the best and all the green is kinda pretty. I’ve also substituted half the apples for fresh pears and that was nice too. I sometimes add a little sliced celery for extra green and extra crunch. A sweet fruit salad named after the apple it features.

Ingredients

    1 Large Granny Smith Apple
    1/2 cup Green Seedless Grapes
    1/8 cup Walnuts (chopped)
    1 cup Light Vanilla Yougurt

Directions

Wash and halve the grapes. Wash, core and cut up the apples into chunks no bigger than the grape halves. (Peal the apple first if you are serving to your fussy mother… but as I say the peal is where the good stuff is so it’s your choice.) Toss the apple chunks and grape halves together with the walnuts and yogurt. Serve right away or refrigerate until needed. It usually keeps ok 'till the next day but its best eaten fresh the same day that you make it.
