Apple, Grape, Walnut Salad

The Menu:
Apple, Grape, Walnut Salad

The Original Recipe:
Ok, so my family loves their sweets. They have been over-doing it a bit lately, so I thought I would take matters into my own hands and make healthier "desserts." I found this recipe from Menus4Moms, and I thought it would be a hit. The loved it. I, however, didn't have walnuts or apples, so I just used grapes. I thought I had recalled seeing this at a party one time with just grapes, so I figured why not? My kids really liked it, and they asked for it again the next night, so I know they truly did enjoy this as their dessert. I am also sure that had I had the other ingredients, it would of gotten the same reviews, too (or maybe even better!).
