Yes, I am posting another Eggnog recipe. lol...Now, I must say if you love Eggnog as I do you will enjoy this easy recipe. I did make some changes from the original recipe of my cookbook, based on my preferences of fruit and decision to use a vanilla mousse mix. This sure packs lots of flavor and the aroma of Eggnog is divine. I love the Granny Smith apple, fresh blueberries and cherries combination which makes this a healthy snack.

Hope you enjoy this yummy unique salad.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small bowl combinge eggnog, vanilla mousse mix and nutmeg. Beat at high speed with electric mixer till soft peaks form. (about 5 minutes).
2
Combine fruits and nuts. [I sliced up the apples, peaches and pears into smaller bites].

---I didn't end up putting in the pineapple because I only had a crushed pineapple. The fresh blueberries, granny smith apple and pecans really blended well together.
3
Now, fold into eggnog mixture. Cover and chill in refrigerator for several hours and even overnight would be good. Stir gently before serving.

NOw, I tasted this with only 1/2 the amount of the fruit mixed in and it was yummy too. Much stronger taste of eggnog and thicker constistency too. Could be made either way.
This is a pic of that way too.
5
This is what I had in the cupboard and decided to use. I had chocolate and strawberry that I thought might be good too.
