You can never have too many fruit salad recipes, right? Especially when they are this creamy and luscious and perfectly easy to prepare! This Creamy Cinnamon Apple and Walnut Fruit Salad is definitely going to be one of my go-to fruit salad recipes from now on. I made it at lunch time and before I’d even taken a bite of the rest of my lunch I’d polished off the my bowl of this and wanted more because it was just that good!
Apples, walnuts and cinnamon just go together, and fruit salads with cream cheese (or in this case light cream cheese) are pretty much the best so you basically already know this is going to be good before tasting it. I love all the textures and flavors in this apple fruit salad. You get those perfectly crisp sweet apples, a light tartness from the dried cranberries, just the right amount of rich creaminess from the dressing and finally that wonderful crunch from the walnuts. Trust me, after one taste it’s a fruit salad you’ll crave from then on!
This is the perfect side to your end of summer cookouts coming up this month and of course it’s the perfect salad to transition into fall with! And let me just say do not leave out the walnuts in this salad. They really do take this salad over the top! And of course I didn’t just use any walnuts, I use Fishers Walnuts not only for there perfect flavor but because they are one of the only brands of recipe nuts made entirely without preservatives! They are one of my go to snacks plus I love adding them to salads, oatmeal, granola, pastas, baked goods, cheese balls (yeah I’m craving one of those right about now) and so much more! Try them in this fruit salad and see for yourself just how delicious they make it!
