Jessie's Apple Salad
(A sweet, cool tradition for holiday meals.)

apples (2 large or 3 small)
raisins (1-2 tablespoons)
celery (1 stalk, sliced thin)
toasted pecans or walnuts (1/4 cup chopped coarsely)
maraschino cherries (8, sliced in half)
liquid from the maraschino cherries (1-2 tablespoons)
mayonnaise or plain yogurt (about 1/2 cup)
orange juice (1/4 cup) or lemon juice (a few squirts)
miniature marshmallows (about 1/3 cup)
one small banana

Chop the apples into half inch chunks. (You can leave the peel on for color if you like.)Coat with lemon or orange juice to prevent browning. Add raisins, celery, nuts, and cherries. Combine mayo and/or yogurt with maraschino cherry juice and stir until smooth. (If you have no cherries, orange juice can be substituted.) Add the sauce to the apple mixture and combine until coated. Chill in the refrigerator. Before serving, add marshmallows and sliced banana and stir.
