Directions
1.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine chopped pears or apples, grapes, 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. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Make Ahead Tip
  • One day ahead, stir together salad dressing; cover and chill overnight. Toast nuts; cool, cover and chill overnight.
Note
  • * Here's a tip from our Test Kitchen: spray your kitchen scissors with nonstick spray coating before snipping the dates and the scissors won't get sticky.
