Combine yogurt, mint and honey. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes and up to overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts on a baking sheet and toast until nuts begin to brown and are fragrant, about 10 minutes.

Cut apples and toss in a large bowl with lime juice to prevent browning. Add fennel, grapes, celery, dried cranberries, cherries and toasted walnuts. Toss to combine well. Drizzle with yogurt dressing and toss gently to combine and coat all ingredients with dressing.

Garnish with fresh mint before serving.
