Ruby Apple Salad
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!
