When a friend brought this salad to a picnic, every bit of it was devoured. I never would have thought apple pie filling in a fruit salad would produce such delicious results.

A tangy warm dressing pulls together all of the delicious elements in this great-tasting spring salad. The bowl looks colorful, thanks to the red onion and sunny hard-cooked eggs in the mixture.

When my mother passed away, she left me a legacy of love—her treasured recipe collection, including this old-time favorite. She would serve this flavorful fruit salad in her best crystal bowl.

In the summer, I make a big batch of these delicious slushy fruit cups and store them in the freezer. They make great snacks and are wonderful to have on hand when friends stop by. We also like them with blueberries, raspberries, muskmelon and cherries.
After tasting this terrific salad my daughter made, I was eager to get the recipe and try it myself. The dressing, which includes hard-cooked egg yolks, is easy to mix up in the blender.
"I first sampled a version of this salad at a restaurant, then I experimented until I came up with a lightened-up dressing that tasted great," writes Laura Kopp of Shiocton, Wisconsin. "Raspberry juice gives a nice fruity flavor to the mixed greens. This is one of my family's favorite summer dishes, which I often serve with whole grain crusty rolls. The salad is extremely quick to toss together."
