Autumn Fruit Salad

Apples are now so crunchy and juicy and they are so healthy for us. Remember the old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." I thought you might like to try this recipe as a colorful and healthy salad to feed your family.


1-1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups cubed upeeled red apples
2 cups halved red seedless grapes
1 cup diced celery
1 cup walnut halves

In a saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in water, bring to a boil. Cook and boil until mixture thickens. Remove from the heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, combine apples, grapes, celery and walnuts. Add dressing and toss gently. Refrigerate until serving. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
