Personal Notes:

Coat apples with lemon juice quickly.

Whisk the mayonnaise and whipped cream together BEFORE adding to the fruit (ensures creamy dressing).

Toast the nuts before adding to the salad .. intensifies their nutty flavor by releasing their natural oils, eliminating their raw taste.

Instead of whipping cream, substitute 2 T plain Greek yogurt or sour cream.
