Taffy Apple Salad

  • Yield 16 to 24 servings

"My name is Heart, I was married on Valentine's Day, and I live in Hartselle - so this salad is very appropriate for the holiday. I just love this recipe - it is refreshing without being too sweet."

Ingredients

1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
2 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 6 apples)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 1/2 cups peanuts, optional

Instructions

  1. Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice. Combine the reserved juice, sugar, vinegar, flour, and the egg in a small saucepan; whisk until well blended. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens, stirring constantly using a whisk. Remove from the heat and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Combine the apples, marshmallows, whipped topping, pineapple, and peanuts, if using, in a large bowl. Add the pineapple mixture and toss gently to blend thoroughly.
