  • Prepare dressing by combining reserved pineapple juice, butter, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Heat contents to boiling.
  • Using a small bowl, combine cornstarch with water to make a smooth paste. Add the paste to the boiled mixture in the saucepan and cook until all ingredients are thick and smooth.
  • Stir in poppyseeds, mayonnaise and yogurt into dressing ingredients, blending well. If desired, 1 cup of mayonnaise can be used instead of 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and 1/2 cup of yogurt.
  • Place in refrigerator and chill until contents become firm and set up. This dressing can be made well ahead of salad and kept until ready to add to fruit.
  • Prepare salad ingredients by chopping apples into small pieces. Slice grapes in half and then combine apples, pineapple chunks, grapes, and poppy seeds in large glass bowl.
  • Add chilled dressing to fruit ingredients and stir in well. Place in refrigerator to chill until ready to serve.
  • To keep crispy, add toasted almonds or pecans just prior to serving salad, stirring in well and placing some on top as garnish.
