During the holidays, I'll at times serve this unusual salad in place of cranberry sauce. It goes well with pork or poultry . Honestly, though, it's good with any everyday meal, too. It's just a little tart, so it rounds out rich food. I've been cooking ever since I made corn bread to surprise my family when I was 9. My brothers wouldn't eat it—but my parents did! My husband and I are dairy farmers in partnership with our grown son.

"Made this for Father's Day dinner and was enjoyed by all. Did not have pineapple juice at home, so opened a can of sliced pineapple, drained the juice off & cut up the pineapple slices to chunks to put in the salad. I did not put the apples in there then and did not put the celery in there either. It tasted good and we all enjoyed the salad. I would definatly make this again."
