Deee-lish! And I love the fact that this is a fruit salad I can make all year long. The apples stay beautiful.

I can't count how many times I've made this salad to take to potlucks; always a hit. For me the pecans give it that little extra something that other fruit salads don't have.

Very easy to make. Works well at potlucks or just about any meal.

This is a very yummy fall salad. Since you have to cook the dressing it takes a little extra time but the flavors really blend nicely.
