This is a recipe from my Grandma Anne and is an oldie. It tastes just like a caramel apple without the caramel! It is so refreshing on a hot summer day.

    **This salad only stays good for a two days at most in the refrigerator. It is best to sprinkle the chopped nuts on before you serve it or they will get soft**
