Feed Me Friday ~ Simple Cinnamon Apple Salad
We ate the evidence for this recipe before I could snap a picture, but try to conjure up an image. I so want you to be inspired to make this very simple, very economical, and actually very healthy recipe … because it’s totally sweet and delicious and sings “Fall!” to the tune of God Bless America. You’ll have time to figure that out, because this recipe is so quick. And after you read the basic info, READ ON! to find out how you can win a beautiful KitchenAid mixer!
Simple Cinnamon Apple Salad
Mix the dressing well:
- 3 T. light mayo
- The juice of 1 orange OR 2 T. apple cider
- 2 T. milk
- 3 T. brown sugar
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 3 medium apples (I used Honey Crisp) chopped OR about 4 cups
- 1/3 c. dried blueberries or cranberries
- (You could add the “old version favorites” of chopped walnuts, celery, or marshmallows, but this salad does NOT need them, and kids love it better without them. Really.)
Stir the fruit, berries and dressing together. Chill for at least an hour and serve as a side dish or send with a packed lunch. This is very Autumn-y and sweet in a healthy, fresh way. I think you could even put on a dollop of whipped cream and call it dessert. There was none left to take a picture of! (And I have NO IDEA why the bullet points are double … it’s a blogging mystery. Anyone have the answer?)
Now for EVERYTHING…
How to win a KitchenAid & play on Pinterest at the same time:
My friend Mary DeMuth has written an awesome book that just came out in October. I’ll be sharing about it this weekend. It’s called EVERYTHING, and it’s completely inspiring, thought-provoking, and comforting in so many ways. I had the fun of reading a preview copy, and I filled it with highlighted marks where there were “one line gems” that Mary has shared. Other people felt the same way, so we made a list of those golden one liners, and Mary is having a Pinterest contest using them. You have to use a line from the list of favorites to make a Pinterest image, post it, and let Mary know you did. If you have a blog, there’s an extra step. Next week a winner will be chosen from all those who entered to give away a beautiful KitchenAid mixer the color of the EVERYTHING cover!
