I know there are many variations of this salad, but, this is the one I use.
3 medium apples, peeled and chopped
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 banana, sliced
3 snickers candy bars, chopped
1 large container cool whip
Chop up all fruits; mix together in bowl. Add chopped up candy bars. The candy bars are easier to chop if they are slightly chilled.
Stir in cool whip. Top with pecans, chopped, if desired.
P.S. If you don't care for pecans, try topping with crushed pretzels.
