  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple or one 15- ¼-ounce can (see Tip)
  • 2 medium apples and/or pears, cored and coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup thinly sliced celery
  • ½ cup halved seedless red grapes
  • ½ cup kiwifruits, peeled, halved lengthwise, and sliced
  • ⅓ cup fat-free mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
  • ⅓ cup lemon fat-free or low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons walnut pieces, toasted (see Tip)
  • 1 bunch Flowering kale or lettuce leaves (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large bowl toss together pineapple, apples or pears, celery, grapes, and kiwifruits. In a small bowl stir together the mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing, yogurt, and honey; fold gently into pineapple mixture.
  2. Cover and chill for up to 6 hours. Just before serving, stir in toasted walnuts. If desired, serve on flowering kale or lettuce leaves.
  • Tip: Refrigerate ripe, fresh pineapple for up to 2 days. Do not store at room temperature. Cut pineapple will last a couple more days if placed in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
