"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."

This is a pretty salad and tastes good, too. There are 22 apple growers in the county where I live, so I have plenty of fresh apples to use for cooking. Years ago, there used to be local apple contests that my two children and I would enter. One year we made a clean sweep of the awards - and I believe this recipe was one of the winners!
