  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 medium unpeeled red apples, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup green grapes
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/4 cup red maraschino cherries, quartered
  • 1/4 cup green maraschino cherries, quartered


  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in milk and pineapple until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Remove from the heat; add butter. Cool. In a bowl, combine the apples, grapes, pecans and cherries. Add dressing; stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
