Summer Apple Salad
This salad is a great-tasting, colorful side dish that contains a mixture of ingredients. It is a good thing this serves 12 because my family can't get enough of it! Tossing fruits and vegetables with a sweet dressing is a deliciously different idea.—Kim Stoller, Smithville, Ohio

I brought this to a pot luck and it was a big hit! The only thing I did differently was use raisins instead of grape halves. I like raisins in apple salads and it was much easier than halving grapes.
