    Terrific recipe !! I have done variations depending on what we have n hand. Tried pear in place of some of the apple. Have used Texas pecans or slivered almonds instead of walnuts. Added finely chopped or grated white onion. Some red grapes added Everything But the Bagel from Trader Joes is also a nice addition. This recipe base is fun to play with !!
