"THE CROWINING GLORY of my aunt's breakfast table was this delightful bowl of fresh fruit. The glorious colors provided the perfect accent to her antique dishes and white linen tablecloth. Bite-sized pieces of melon were prepared the night before, slightly sweetened with corn syrup, and chilled in the icebox. The other fruits were added just prior to serving, making this dish a light, colorful complement to our breakfast."
This cool, refreshing salad with crunchy nuts and apples makes me think of my mother and Thanksgiving. Mom prepared it each year for that holiday since apples were plentiful. She served it in a beautiful cut-glass bowl that belonged to my grandmother.
