  • 3 green apples , washed and diced
  • 3 cups halved red seedless grapes
  • 3 celery ribs diced
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 cups prepared fresh whipped cream or Cool Whip
  • 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts , for garnish


  • Combine apples, grapes, and celery in a large mixing bowl, set aside.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, combine whipped cream or Cool Whip with the drained crushed pineapple and 1 tablespoon of the reserved juice from the can. Add an additional 2 tablespoons of the reserved pineapple juice to the fruit mixture and toss to combine. Fold the whipped cream into the fruit mixture and mix together. Fold in 1/2 cup mini marshmallows. Sprinkle walnuts over the top as a garnish and serve.


Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container. Best if eaten within a few days. If the salad is made with fresh whipped cream, the leftovers will stay fresher for longer than if you use Cool Whip.
