    COUNTIFS using multiple criteria - maybe an OR function?

    I want to count the number of times the following conditions are met. I am trying to use the COUNTIFS function but I got stuck when the criteria can be any of 3 options. I don't want to count the pink apples.
    Column A="Apple"
    AND Column B="red" OR Column B="Yellow" OR column B="Green)

    Please see attachment
    Thanks

    Re: COUNTIFS using multiple criteria - maybe an OR function?

    This formula will give you an "OR"

    =SUM(COUNTIFS(A1:A16,"apple",B1:B16,{"Red","Yellow","Green"}))

    ....or for your example this will give the same result

    =COUNTIFS(A1:A16,"apple",B1:B16,"<>Pink")
