I’m usually pretty sad when summer comes to an end, but I do love the fall! Seeing the leaves change colors, apple picking and all the wonderful things we can do when the weather cools! This autumn fruit salad is the perfect fall treat; it’s light and crisp, requires no cooking and is absolutely addicting!

Apples and grapes

This is the BEST FALL FRUIT SALAD! It’s so easy to whip up for dessert or snack, great for a crowd, a Thanksgiving dessert, or a weekday snack.

Variations and Tips:

  • Adjust the Serving Size: You can easily double this recipe for a a fall fruit salad to feed a crowd or halve it for less servings.
  • Make it Nut Free: Swap the nuts with hemp seeds, pepitas or chopped pretzels.
