Fruity Green Salad

 Fruity Green Salad
My family enjoys this fast and refreshing salad. It's jazzed up with a beautiful blend of red apple, pear, dried cranberries, toasted pecans and Swiss cheese. No matter when I serve it, the light dressing and fruity flavor remind me of springtime. -Helen Petisi, Palm Coast, Florida
