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.

How to Make Eggnog Fruit Salad

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.
  4. 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.
