I've kept this recipe from my Grandmother. Apples, celery, dates and walnuts are dressed in a light fluffy marshmallow cream. It's very good and children seem to love it.

Made exactly as is but used stevia instead of sugar. Loved the crunch and the slight sweetness. I used my homemade mayo (whole egg Mayo here on AR)and to me it tastes so fresh doing that. I would def. consider using raisins or cranberries if I didn't have dates. Even a touch of pineapple would be super. Read More

I made this salad with honeycrisp apples and cut the sugar to 2 tsp to make up for using sweet apples then let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours before serving. The dressing didn't taste sweet when I put it in the fridge but it picked up the sweetness from the apples as it sat overnight. It was wonderful! I'll be making this again & again. Read More

Fabulous! Used a sweet apple because that's what I had; didn't peel. Added one chopped peach from a can that I needed to use and about a dozen halved grapes I also needed to use. Didn't have any whipping cream so used 3/4 c. vanilla yogurt and upped the marshmallows to 1/2 c. Wonderful recipe. A keeper. Read More
