Agriculture.com Staff 11/14/2013 @ 2:06pm

Start to finish: 30 minutes
Number of servings: 10

4 cups chopped pears or chopped apples
1 cup seedless grapes, halved
1 cup sliced celery
2/3 cup slivered almonds or broken pecans, toasted
1/2 cup snipped pitted whole dates or raisins
Leaf lettuce
2⁄3 cup whole cranberry sauce
1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup dairy sour cream
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon celery seed

1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine chopped pears or apples, halved grapes, sliced celery, almonds or pecans, and dates or raisins. Divide fruit mixture among lettuce-lined salad plates. 

2. For dressing, in a small mixing bowl, combine cranberry sauce, mayonnaise or salad dressing, sour cream, milk, lemon juice, and celery seed. Drizzle dressing over fruit mixture.

Make-ahead ideas: One day ahead, stir together salad dressing; cover and chill overnight. Toast nuts; cool, cover, and chill overnight.

Test Kitchen tip: Spray your kitchen scissors with nonstick spray coating before snipping the dates, and the scissors won’t get sticky.
