Caramel Apple Salad

The weather is finally starting to feel “fallish” around here for a few hours in the morning and in the evenings… so fall food is on my mind and what better recipe to start with but something with apples!

Ingredients:

1 large can crushed pineapple

2 Tablespoons flour

2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/2 Cup sugar

1 egg

6 Granny Smith apples

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

3/4 Cup peanuts

8 ounces Kool Whip

Drain crushed pineapple.

Add 2 Tablespoons flour.

Add 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar.

Add 1/2 Cup sugar.

Add 1 egg.

This is one of my favorite tools to whisk up ingredients.  So grab something and mix this all up.

Transfer this pineapple mixture to a small saucepan and on medium-low heat, stir continually for about 8-10 minutes.

Once it is the thickness of a pudding, transfer it to a glass bowl.

Store this in the refrigerator until it is cool.

Dice up the Granny Smith apples leaving the skins on.

Toss them in a bag with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

Once the pineapple mixture is cool and all the apples are diced, mix them together in a large bowl.

Add 3/4 cup peanuts to the apples and mix it up.

Fold in 8 ounces of Kool Whip.

I am at a loss as to why this tastes just like a caramel apple but it does and it disappears quickly.  Enjoy!  T
