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.

    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.

    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.

    This is what I had in the cupboard and decided to use. I had chocolate and strawberry that I thought might be good too.
