Love this recipe! I used Granny Smith apples - left the peeling on for fiber, flavor, texture and color. I also used fat free Cool Whip and sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix. I was also careful to use Libby's Skinnyfruit no sugar added pineapple. I'm on Weight Watcher's right now and 1 cup is only 3 delicious Smartpoints! Read More

This turned out great and everyone at my potluck loved it. I peeled the apples and used 1 granny smith and 1 honeycrisp. I used pineapple tidbits with all the juice because I accidentally bought that instead of crushed. It worked fine. I've made this salad before and instead of peanuts I use a cup of chopped up Snickers bars. The butterscotch pudding and pineapple really make this recipe better than other similar salads. update-I just realized that the recipe only calls for an 8 oz can of pineapple and I have always used a 20 oz can and it comes out perfectly the way we like it. Also I use about 12 fun size Snicker bars. Read More

I left out the peanuts due to so many allergies when I took this to a neighborhood block party. very pretty and delicious salad. I also doubled the number of apples (used four) to make it a little healthier. Read More

I thought this salad was very tasty and not overly sweet. I used some salted caramel coated peanuts with a bit of leftover toffee bits for a bit more texture. I needed a vegan and gluten-free option for a potluck but this didn't seem to have been a very popular choice. Read More
