Ingredients

  • Creamy Honey-Lime Salad Dressing (see recipe below)
  • 2 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • Leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 small honeydew melon, peeled, halved crosswise, and sliced
  • 1 cup halved seedless red or green grapes
  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts or slivered almonds (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare the Creamy Honey-Lime Salad Dressing.
  2. In a bowl, toss apple slices with the lime or lemon juice.
  3. Place the leaf lettuce on each of 6 salad plates. Arrange the apple and honeydew slices on the lettuce; place the grapes in clusters next to the melon and apple arrangements. Spoon Creamy Honey-Lime Salad Dressing on top. Sprinkle with pistachios or almonds, if you like. Makes 6 servings.

Variation

  • 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, plus the grapes and the pistachios or the almonds. Fold in the salad dressing. Serve on lettuce leaves. Makes 8 servings.

Note

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