Thanksgiving side dish.. fruit salad ideas?
 
Besides making my own dinner, i am attending my mom's diner this weekend. She asked me to bring a salad. A lettuce based one, I asked? no. A pasta salad? no. A fruit with mini marshmellows or ambrosia salad? no.. thats like a desert she said.

So she would like something.. maybe with apples and cranberries..

and thats all I got for ideas. LOL. Anyone have a salad, with fruit, that is a nice side dish, but not too sweet.. and yet, not lettuce based?
I know, im asking a lot.. I did some searching on allrecipes.. and after page 5, gave up and decided to just ask here instead.:chef:

To your apples and cranberries, add fresh mint leaves and toasted pecans and make an orange juice-poppy seed dressing for it. No added sugar! :)
