Another Apple Salad
An Apple A Day
One of my favorite things to do is create low-budget snacks and meals because I love challenges. We all know that “Apples” are very good for us and most children love them. I use to make this Apple Salad all of the time when my brother and sister lived at home. I have called it several things throughout the years but for the sake of this article, I will just call it “Another Apple Salad"
Apples are in the Rose family (Rosaceae) and is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits that are used my humans. The apple tree originated in Western Asia and there are more than 7.500 known cultivars. At least 55 million tons of apples were grown worldwide in 2005 with a value of over $10 Billion Dollars.
- 3- Honey Crisp Apples, cubed into small pieces
- 1 Cup Golden Raisins
- 1 Cup Walnuts, Chopped finely
- 1 Container Low Fat Cool Whip
- 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon Ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
- Ginger Snap Cookies, (optional)
- Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. You may want to increase the spice amounts to your tasting. Unfortunately, I am the worst at measuring things when I cook. After you mix it, taste it and use your judgement about the spices. Chill for a couple of hours.
- ** There is something about the ginger-snaps that just adds to the flavor. **When I made this salad/dip pretty regularity I would always stock up on apples when I caught them on sale. Remember there are a TON of things you can do with them, and they will last a good while in the refrigerator- especially Granny Smith Apples.
- **Try to purchase nuts when they are sale and keep them in the freezer and they will last longer. I usually purchase them during autumn when they have all of the baking stuff displayed at the stores, bring them home and freeze them. That way when I want to add nuts to a recipe I just pull them out of the freezer. I have found they stay even fresher when you put them into mason jars and than freeze.
