  • 2 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • Leaf lettuce

  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts or slivered almonds (optional)


  1. In a bowl, toss apple slices with the lime or lemon juice.

  • Waldorf-Style Green Fruit Salad: Prepare as above, except cut unpeeled apples into bite-size pieces; place in a mixing bowl and toss with lime juice or lemon juice. Add the melon cut into bite-size pieces, the grapes and, if you like, the pistachios or almonds. Fold in the salad dressing. Serve on lettuce leaves. Makes 8 side-dish servings.


  • * If you can't find any melon in your grocery store during the winter, you can just substitute another fresh fruit.
