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. -Jeannette Mack, Rushville, New York

"This was a very nice recipe. I used Splenda (granulated) in place of the sugar. I was very nice. I served it at a dinner party and everyone liked it. It's a KEEPER recipe."
