Ruby Apple Salad Recipe

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!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 package (3 ounces) cherry gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons red-hot candies
  • 1-3/4 cups boiling water
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups chopped apples
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. In a bowl, stir gelatin and candies in boiling water until dissolved. Chill until partially set. Fold in apples, celery and walnuts. Pour into a 1-qt. serving bowl. Chill until firm, at least 4 hours. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I would give this a 10 if possible. I have made it many time snow. Once I ate the whole bowl in two days. I just can;t get enough of it. So refressing!!!! Definately a keeper. As a matter of fact, I always make sure I have all the ingredients on hand at all times."
