Peanut Apple Salad Recipe
For a change of pace, I toss together this crisp, colorful dish in place of an ordinary green salad. Folks have commented on the interesting mix of crunchy nuts, apples and veggies and the tangy honey-yogurt dressing.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings
- 1 cup (8 ounces) plain or orange yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey

- Lettuce leaves, optional
- 1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, honey, salt and pepper. Add the fruit, vegetables and nuts; gently stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Serve in a lettuce-lined bowl if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
