Apple Salad

Comment on this recipe

I was served this salad at a tea party and it was delicious. Good during the fall, when apples are best, but very refreshing during any time.

Ingredients

Sauce:
1/4 cup pineapple juice, sweetened
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 egg, slightly beaten
Salad:
1/2 cup unsalted peanuts
8 ounces Cool Whip
4 cups apples, cored and diced (6 to 8 apples)
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Instructions

Mix pineapple juice, sugar, flour, vinegar and egg in saucepan and cook on top of stove until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Then put in refrigerator until mixture cools, usually overnight. Fold peanuts, Cool Whip, apples and marshmallows into sauce mixture and either serve immediately or chill until serving. Apples can be of your choice, but Pink Ladies work great. Also have used colored marshmallows to make salad more attractive.
