Apple Pear Salad

Recipe from: Cathy Seed
Servings: 8

When very good friends drove a long way to visit me after I moved, I served them this wonderful salad with fruit and nuts. Needless to say, we had a great visit and lots of good food.

2 medium tart apples, cut into chunks
2 medium firm pears, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¾ cup seedless red grapes
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1 head Boston or Bibb lettuce
⅓ cup chopped walnuts, toasted

In a bowl, toss apples and pears with lemon juice. Add grapes; toss gently. In a another bowl, combine the water, vinegar, oil, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour over fruit and toss to coat. Serve in lettuce-lined bowls; sprinkle with walnuts.
