Reviews for Autumn Apple Salad
"Excellent!! I made it yesterday for a Veterans Day Dinner at our Club House and many asked for the recipe. I will be making it for our Thanksgiving Dinner, also."
"I tried this recipe for the first time for Thanksgiving this year and it was a hit! It is so easy to make too. It is right up there with the orange gelatin pretzel salad as my favorite go to dessert recipes for the holidays or anytime!"
"This is a wonderful recipe. I made it, following the recipe and took it to a potluck, where it was a huge hit. Everyone loved it."
"I absolutely love this salad! I often sub sugar free jello and replace some or all of the sugar with Splenda. It seems like I make this about once every month for some event, but I think I could eat the entire bowl by myself! Yummy!"
"I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it so much my Mother made it for Christmas. It's really good!"
