All ingredients may be prepared beforehand, except the apples.
Peel and cube the apples just before dinner, since they will darken as they stand.
Combine the apples, carrots, raisins, celery, and nuts.
Prepare a most unusual dressing by beating the eggs slightly and adding the sugar, lemon juice, sirup, vinegar, and other juices.
Place in a double boiler and stir constantly until the mixture begins to thicken.
Cool and serve.
Spoon the golden yellow dressing over the salad at table, or mix the fruit and dressing well before serving and top with a very small star of mayonnaise and a whole, half, or section of maraschino cherry on top.
