Apple Salad

This is a very refreshing and fast salad to make. Fall always makes me think of apples. We have lots of apples in the mountains of North Carolina. If you can find fresh apples or local apples it will taste even better.

1 red delicious apple
1 yellow delicious apple
1/2 tsp Fruit Fresh or spritz apples with lemon juice
2/3 cup coconut
1 can - 8 oz.- pineapple drained - or one cup fresh pineapple
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup miniature marshmellows
1/4 cup lite mayonnaise

Core and dice the apples and then add Fruit Fresh or lemon juice. Mix remaining ingredients in medium size container. Chill about 1 hour before serving. Makes about six servings. I store in a glass container. Sometimes I substitute mandarin oranges for the coconut.
