Apple Salad with Marshmallows & Walnuts

Updated on June 23, 2013

Enjoy a refreshing bowl of Apple Salad


Refreshing Idea:

Try this delicious and romantic side salad with your main course dinner. It's sure to be a different and appealing.

This recipe may soon become one of your favorite...

Apples have always been a favorite fruit for many. There are the traditional desserts, such as apple pie, candied apples, apple crumble, just to name a few. The recipe I will give you today is, in my opinion both a side salad and a dessert. Enjoy! A fresh and delicious idea for any special holiday and any day. Kids love this recipe...whip cream and marshmallows...who can resist?Looking for a healthier choice, use Greek yogurt instead of whip cream. Another variation is using sour cream...try it.



Ingredients: You will need a large bowl.

5 to 6 - apples (recommend Granny Smith) do not peel

5 stalks - celery, leaves included

2 to 3 cups - small marshmallows

1 cup - walnuts, chopped or whole, as preferred

1, 16 ounce - heavy whipping cream (Note: you may substiture with sour cream, yogurt or Greek yogurt )


  1. Chop apples, leave the peeling on for added flavor and color. Size should be bite-size or a little smaller.
  2. Chop celery, small size, approx. 1/4", be sure to include some of the leaves from the celery, they have lots of flavor.
  3. Walnuts may be slightly chopped or used whole, if you prefer.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the chopped apples, celery, small marshmallows, and walnuts.
  5. Add prepared *whipped cream, and slowly combine. May garnish with a few walnuts on top.
  6. Cover, keep chilled until ready to use.
  7. * Prepare heavy whipping cream by mixing, with an electric hand mixer or Kitchen-aid type mixer, until it thickens. This can take several minutes...helpful to use a glass or metal bowl that has been chilled, before pouring in the heavy cream.

Combine in a bowl...

      Am looking for a recipe for an apple salad we used to have years ago. This comes fairly close, but is not quite the same. Sounds good though. Thanks for the Hub. Voted up and useful.

      Brainy Bunny - It is similar to ambrosia fruit salad, but the coloring is green and white, due to the green apple peel and celery, and white from the marshmallows and cream. (sorry no pic at this time, will try to post soon)

      This is unlike any recipe I've ever seen before. Do you have any pictures so I can see the finished product?
