To prepare Betty Crocker���s spring greens fruit salad, mix 1/2 cup white wine or champagne vinegar with 1/4 cup vegetable or olive oil, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon freshly chopped marjoram leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves, and a dash of salt. Mix 6 cups mixed baby greens, 2 cups sliced strawberries, and 2 pitted and thinly sliced peaches in a large serving bowl. Add 1 cup diced Gouda cheese.

Add the vinegar mixture to the bowl, tossing the mixture to coat it thoroughly. Garnish the top with 1/2 cup of toasted and coarsely chopped hazelnuts. Betty Crocker notes that cheddar, Gruyere or Jarlsberg cheeses are good substitutes for the Gouda if desired.

To prepare Betty Crocker���s honey lime fruit salad, mix 1/2 cup honey with 1/2 cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate and 1 tablespoon poppy seeds. Toss the mixture with 12 cups of cut-up fresh fruit of your choice, such as kiwi fruit, pink grapefruit or cantaloupe. To garnish, sprinkle the top with 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds. Betty Crocker recommends serving this salad in chilled champagne flutes.
