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.
