Autumn Apple Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
Whether I make it for a Sunday dinner, a company dinner or a covered-dish dinner, people like the blend of flavor in this salad. The ladies ask for the recipe...the men ask me to make sure their wives get a copy of it! Our house is on the edge of town. It has lots of room for gardening (my husband, my parents and grandparents, all lived on farms). I'm a second-grade teacher with two boys, 5 and 2, who "help" Mommy cook.

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"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!"
