Taffy Apple Salad

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? The Joy of Eating: Taffy Apple Salad! Wait a minute….is this allowed?! I can’t resist a sweet caramel apple this time of year. Or two. So to balance the blend of flavors ranging from sweet to tart to salty, I threw in some healthy greens, cheese, and cinnamon. Make sense? The old fashioned taste of ooey-chewy caramel turns an ordinary salad into an autumn festival. Join the party.



Leaves of Romaine lettuce

1 caramel apple with nuts

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, finely shredded

1/4 cup Spanish peanuts

Cinnamon to taste


Gently tear romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces. Cut the caramel apple into wedges to remove the stick and eliminate the seeds. Add to the salad. Top with Parmesan cheese and Spanish peanuts. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples.

  1. When I was a lot younger and went “trick or treating” there was one neighbor who always made candied apples. You had to get there early as they were very popular. I’m ready for your “adult version” which would satisfy my craving for that childhood treat πŸ™‚
