Caramel Apple Salad

Kids of all ages will love the caramel apple taste of this easy-to-prepare dish. "This salad could arguably be used as a dessert," says Dawn Harvey of Danville, Pennsylvania. "It's very pretty with red apples or a combination of red and green apples."

    I have made this regularly for years since I first saw the recipe. It is easy, uses just a few ingredients, and is such a good salad, especially for fall!

    I made this using regular ingredients (not low fat or sugar free) because its what I had on hand and it turned out great! I wouldve given it five stars however the look of this dessert isn't very appealing (looks a bit like lumpy orange/brown goop). Initially the family took little bits but came back later for more after they discovered how great it tastes. Next time I intend to cut back on the milk so its thicker, place it in a graham crust, top with more whipped cream and caramel sundae topping, and serve as a pie!

    This is a great salad recipe that goes fast! I changed things up a little bit though. I added an 8 oz can of undrained crushed pineapple and omitted the 1 cup milk replacing it with 1 cup of mini marshmallows instead. Just mixed everything together in a bowl and chilled it. Delicious!
