Lightened Up Snickers and Apple Salad

I’ve seen the apple and snickers salad around for years. I even featured it years ago in a newsletter. I decided to see if I could make it a little more diabetic friendly so I used sugar free cool whip and sugar free pudding to make the dressing and omitted the caramel you usually see on top for a few Heath toffee chips. It is delicious!

I leave the skins on the apple for 2 reasons, one they are good for you and two they add color to the salad. If you’re buying apples to make this salad I’d pick out at least 2 kinds of apples. The galas are a soft apple and sweet while the other apples were varying levels of crispiness and sweetness. Granny Smiths would be good in this also.

I was lucky because Frieda’s sent me a bunch of organic apples and I still had a few. I used some Galla’s I had also. I got some Cox’s Orange, Cortlands and Ribston Pippins. Those are some quinces on the top of the apples. I made the best Membrillo with it. It is a fruit paste that is served with cheese as an appetizer, so yummy! Go over and take a look because you need to be making this for those holiday cheese trays.

I just love apples in the fall! I sure wish apples grew in Florida, I’d sure love to go to a cider mill this weekend.
