delicious fruit salad

i used to make an apple salad with mayonnaise that i LOVED, but i didn't make it very often because the mayo is just not good for you. i found a recipe for a lighter version, and made it the other day for a side during lunch. i found it on, which i have found to be a great resource for meal plans when i am stuck.

Apple, Grape and Walnut salad

  • 3 sliced and cored Granny Smith apples
  • 1 bunch red grapes, pulled from the stems
  • chopped walnuts
  • 8 oz. vanilla yogurt
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
Mix the cream cheese and yogurt until well blended (we used our bullet blender). put fruit, etc in a bowl and mix in the yogurt blend. refrigerate :)

i didn't have any grapes the second time i made it, so we added raisins instead. another good add-in would be celery or pineapple chunks.

yummy!! and so much better for me :)

Hi Gin,
Congrats on little Jeffrey! I can't believe he broke his clavicle! How sad. I've been using menus4moms these past 3 months or so and I am loving it. I made that salad, too. Yum, although we have a walnut allergy in the family. I can't wait to see more pictures of you little man!
