Easy Festive Fruit Salad Recipe

As colorful as the leaves on the autumn trees, this fruit salad disappears fast down to the last spoonful. The light dressing doesn't hide the refreshing flavors of the fruit. Pecans add crunch and the rich flavor of the harvest season. -Julianne Johnson, Grove City, Minnesota

I LOVE this recipe!! The only changes I make----I use fresh pears and also add strawberries, blueberries, and grapes!! The combinations are endless. I especially enjoy using honey crisp apples. Thank you, Julianne Johnson!!!

Reviewed Dec. 8, 2010

It was in November of 2003 while I was pregnant with my first child and my nesting instincts were in full force that I first found this recipe. I am writing to say...it has been enthusiastically requested every fall since. I love this recipe!!
