large family food idea apple salad

This is one of families favorite fall foods.  We actually had tried a couple of different recipes that we found in some cookbooks and just didn’t care for “their” version.  So we came up with this as our families favorite.  Fun, easy, quick dessert.

Apple salad

  • 10-sweet apples–I cut up 1 apple for every person, you can use less
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1-10  oz pkg mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 2 T miracle whip
  • 4 T sugar–regular not raw
  • 1 container of Cool Whip

Peel, and dice your apples into a large bowl, add your bananas, cranberries, and chopped peanuts.2013-10-25_00013

Mix it all together to combine.  Serve that day.  This will usually stay good for about 1 1/2 days.2013-10-25_00017
