Wherever I take this one-of-a-kind salad, people eat it until it's gone. I got the original recipe from my mother-in-law and adapted it to fit my tastes. My fondness for cheese and cranberries prompted my to toss them into the delicious mix.
"This pretty salad is a staple at my house. I've shared the recipe with any satisfied guests," pens Lois Kenneberg, Phoenix, Arizona. "It's easily divided for smaller portions, too—I frequently make just 'one apple's worth'. I you don't like pineapple, try substituting canned mandarin oranges and juice instead."
“I came up with this scrumptious apple salad while experimenting with leftover dessert ingredients one day,” laughs Diana Stucky from her Castle Rock, Colorado home. “Friends have said it's the best salad they've ever eaten!”
Tip: Sprinkle cinnamon over the salad just before serving.
