About This Recipe
“This is a recipe I adopted because it sounded interesting. It took me a while to get around to making it, which is too bad because I thought it was really delicious. For an apple salad, it will keep fairly well in the fridge; we ate the leftovers a day later and they were still in good condition.The main change I have made from the original recipe is to cut the number of apples in half. It still makes quite a lot, and plenty for 4 servings.”
