Lots of apples are grown in southern Illinois, and this is one of my favorite ways to use them. I like Golden Delicious, or a combination of Golden and Red Delicious for pretty color, but you can use whatever type of apple you prefer. The cooked dressing gives the salad an old-fashioned feel.
When I make this dish, I invite my next-door neighbor over for supper. It's just enough for the two of us. This tasty chicken is tender and moist, with a bit of crunch from the cashews.

Begin a tax-crunched evening with CPA Snack, featuring a yummy mixture of seasoned nuts. The name has a double meaning, since it stands certified public accountant as well as the main ingredients (cashews, pecans and almonds)!—Betty Jean Jordan, Monticello, Georgia
