Fruit Salad






Here is another from my mother's recipe collection. Since I had the ingredients on hand, I thought I would try it.

I used 2 apples and 2 bananas and 2/3 cup walnuts, and I added a little whipped cream. This is so delicious and very filling. It would make a perfect lunch or a side dish at supper.

  1. It's kind of like what my mother called Waldorf Salad -- but now I think of it, that didn't have bananas. Apples, walnuts,, celery -- and whipped cream. Odd, but it tasted wonderful!

    I like your mother's better I think. (Heresy -- but I love bananas.)

  2. Nan, I saw your comments about the gardening clogs. I'm happy to hear that they fit you and you like them.

  3. That's the nice thing about fruit salad, isn't it? You can use just any fruit that is on hand, and actually do not need any additional ingredients - depending on the type of fruit, the fruit juice forms its own dressing :-)
    I love the combination of apples and nuts! A handful of raisins makes it perfect for me.

  8. Nan, I love a salad of this type.
    I have never used bananas. Usually some black grapes, raisins and a little celery with the apples. I am going to try it with the bananas. Thank you for reminding me.

  9. Ernestine, a couple other people mentioned celery too, but it isn't a food I like at all.:<) Another fruit salad I like is just strawberries and kiwis. Yum.

  10. This reminds me of the great fruit salad my grandmother used to make, she used the same ingredients plus oranges.

  11. Well, we have a glut of walnuts from our tree this year, so this is something I can certainly try with fresh, creamy walnuts!

  12. Did I see "dressing" in your mother's recipe? I wonder what that was???

    This sounds wonderful as is...I have sometimes stirred a tiny bit of peanut butter into the "dressing" in a similar salad. And I DO like raisins in it, too...

  13. That looks delicious and healthy to boot! Is that your Mom's writing on the recipe card? If so, how special it must be. :) (I LOVE recipes!)

  14. Bruessel, thank you for coming by and leaving a note. I have seen fruit salads with oranges and grapefruit. I guess you can make them with any fruits you personally love.

    Galant, a miracle to have your own walnuts!

    Rebecca, I'll never know, sadly. Peanut butter huh. Interesting.

    Nancy, yes it is. I hope to post more as I try them over time.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
