The whipped topping, apples and nuts make this easy apple salad both creamy and crunchy.

Loved this stuff! Made it twice and it was better the second time around with the addition of an extra cup of marshmallows. Will be making this for the next carry-in at work. Read More

This salad was too rich for our family. Even though I used "Lite Cool Whip" and pineapple in it's natural juice--we (myself my hubby and my 5 & 6 year old grandaughters) found we could only eat very small servings. If I make it gain I will try halfing the recipe. Read More

Recipe is delicious! It does make more than 7 servings though. I doubled it and ended up with 2 large bowls and then some. Read More

I couldn't find raw spanish peanuts anywhere! I used dry roasted peanuts that I already had. They were not salted. This salad is so yummy. Can't quit eating it. UPDATE: I just made this salad with the raw spanish peanuts and I DO NOT like it! The raw nuts have a weird taste that I don't care for. I wish I had tasted before adding to the salad.:-( I liked it much better with dry roasted peanuts. Just my preference. Read More

I love recipes that have "salad" in the title but are delicious like this! Received many rave reviews this evening and everyone had seconds. The only alteration I made was I used cider vinager instead of white wine vinegar. Salad just gets better after sitting the fridge. Read More

I made the mistake of upping the servings on this dish and ended up with WAY too much. The dish as is serves WAY more than it says it does. The taste is fantastic but I found it helpful to slowly mix in the whipped cream instead of adding all of it at once. It ended up being way too soupy and I had to add more apples and marshmallows to salvage it. Read More

The problem would be with the whipped topping. It was underestimated how the consistency of the whipped topping would change with times being stirred or out of refrigeration during serving and even simply as it set. It became a bit more slurry then I would have liked so I'd suggest using 2/3 of the container if not less. Also the Spanish peanuts have a bit of an overwhelming taste; using unsalted peanuts was a much better addition. Lastly rather using two apples of the same I used a red and yellow apple. They added a bit more to the taste pallet (and color;D). However me and my family really enjoyed this recipe. After first tasting this at my local grocery store I saught out to make it: this was nearly it and didn't last long at my house!;) Notes: Don't be timid about how long one should/can heat the vinegar sugar egg flour and pineapple juice mix ( yes wait for it to thicken on the stove but ) remember once chilled it thickens more. Cut the pineapple chuncks smaller; that way they spread out better for serving. Read More

I doubled this recipe for a family reunion and it turned out great! The only problem I had was finding Spanish peanuts without the red skin. I ended up spending some time and removing some of it before I added it to the dish. This is a delicous recipe! Perfect for summer! Read More
