    I made this for a winter snow golf on the lake day. I cut up Granny Smith apples and strawberries and also served green grapes. Everyone loved it.

    needed a quick fruit tray for a party and only had apples. This was VERY quick and super tasty. Family and friends loved it and it was a perfect pairing for the apples and really made my simple fruit tray extra special.
