Not sure if it's the right one, but my Grandma always made one like this (never wrote it down)

Grandma's Apple Salad
green apples, cubed
red apples, cubed
banana slices, soaked in lemon juice
celery, chopped
sugared dates (the little pieces)
mini marshmallows
pecans or walnuts
marischino cherries

Mix together and add dressing

Dressing was sort of a concoction of sour cream, granulated sugar and mayo with some of the marischino cherry juice added for pinkness.
(you could also add the cinnamon)

It sounds like a variation of a Waldorf Salad that has cinnamon added to it. Google "waldorf salad recipe" and you'll turn up a ton of different ones.
