Apple Salad (Waldorf Updated)

Mother and Grandma both made the classic Waldorf salad and we enjoyed it especially around the holiday's as I recall.  I make is just because I like it and kick it up a notch with a few additions.

Apple Salad ingredients:

2 washed, cored, and diced red skinned apples (leave on the peels of all the fruits)
1 washed, cored, and diced green skinned apple
1 large washed, cored, and diced pear
1 1/2 C. washed, stemmed, and halved red seedless grapes
1 1/2 C. washed, stemmed, and halved green seedless grapes
1 orange peeled, sliced 1/4" thick, seeded,  then halve the slices
1 C. sliced celery 1/4" thick
1 C. small cheddar cheese cubes
1/2 C. pecan or walnut pieces
1/2 lemon juiced
1/2 C. mayonnaise
2 T. honey

Squeeze the lemon juice into the bottom of a large bowl and toss in the prepared apples and pears.  Stirring well to coat all of the fruit in the juice.  Add all of the rest of the ingredients and stir together well.  Cover and chill until serving time.  Stir well again and serve in pretty glasses or lettuce cups.

Yield 8-10 servings.
