From My Kitchen ~ Taffy Apple Salad

This is a colorful treat that tastes just like caramel apples. So pretty served in your favorite vintage bowl!

1/2 c sugar
1 T all-purpose flour
1 egg
2 T apple cider vinegar
8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained & juice reserved

4-6 c red, yellow & green apples, cored & sliced
2 1/2 c salted peanuts, divided
8 oz whipped topping

In a medium saucepan, over low heat bring sugar, flour, egg, vinegar and pineapple juice to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Place apples into a large serving bowl; add pineapple and 2 cups of peanuts. Fold in sugar mixture and whipped topping; top with remaining peanuts. Makes 10 servings ~ or it may just feed your husband if he likes it as much as my husband does!

This is just such a refreshing & healthful treat. It's even good for breakfast! You can reduce the sugar. I usually peel the apples because my husband likes it better that way. And I wait to add the nuts right before I serve so they don't get soft.

This pretty bowl was a gift from my mom. Thanks, Mom! It is my favorite!

Blessings & good health,

Hope all is well in your world.
