When I think about fruit salad, I usually think about a fruit salad filled with my favorite summer fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew. Now that fall is here, it’s time to focus on one of the most popular fruits ever…..apples. This Apple Cranberry Fruit Salad is a delicious fall recipe that your family will love.

Apple season is in full swing here on the farm and I can’t get enough of them. They are in full bounty this year.This yummy fruit salad is filled with sweet apples (I like to mix varieties for a more depth of flavor). Serving apples in a fruit salad can be tricky because they turn brown. But, by soaking them in some lemon water, it preserves their color.

Apples and cranberries, or in this case Craisins, are the perfect pair. Add some chopped pecans into the mix and you have hit a home run. The creamy dressing is made with Neufchatel cheese and Greek yogurt and seasoned with a generous amount of cinnamon.

This Apple Cranberry Salad packs the perfect crunchy punch. I love pecans but you can use any nut you like. Walnuts or almonds would be excellent in this as well. This salad should be eaten soon after you mix all the ingredients together. Even though the apples are soaked in lemon water, they may oxidize and turn brown.

This is the perfect recipe to serve at a fall celebration or as a yummy snack for the family.
