Its that time again...for making those summer salads.
I love that its "acceptable behavior" for the cook (thats me) to make salads for dinner during the busy, hot months of summer. Everyone appreciates that I don't heat the house up by turning on the stove or oven...and I appreciate the simpleness of making a quick dinner...not to mention the easy clean up. We were invited to a fun barbecue the other night and I decided to try out my culinary skills. I wanted to make something that was light, easy and good at the same time. I came up with this delicious summer salad, which was a huge hit with everyone....and I will have to say, I was quite proud of my creativity.
Give it a try...and I bet you will love it too.
Crunchy Apple Salad
3-8 oz. tubs of whip topping, thawed (I used fat-free...and everyone thought it was yummy)
3 Nestle' Crunch candy bars
3-4 apples, diced into small pieces
1 c. chopped walnuts
Crush candy bars up (I just smashed and broke them while they were in the package) and place in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add apples and walnuts, stir until well mixed. Add whipped topping and fold into other ingredient. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
