Caramel Apple Salad

Since we have discussed my fear of mayonnaise-based salads, we should probably talk about marshmallows in salads. Naturally, this reminds me of every episode of How I Met Your Mother that involves Marshall’s mother, and I do agree with Lily that creamy salads are maybe not really salads. Similarly, marshmallows in salads are generally weird. Except in this one. It is another summertime dessert staple and honestly, maybe I will stop calling it a “salad” in an attempt to remove the weird stigma that may only exist in my very strange mind. We’ll see how motivated I am this summer. 

But hey, bonus – this dessert has under 100 calories (89, to be exact) per serving! 

 
Caramel Apple Salad

Serves 8-10

  • 3 c. chopped apples (I have zero patience for peeling so I don’t. Also, any kind of apple works but Granny Smith is delightful in my opinion.)
  • 8 oz. crushed pineapple in juice (do not drain)
  • 1 package fat free, sugar free instant butterscotch pudding
  • 1 c. mini marshmallows
  • 8 oz. fat free Cool Whip

In a large bowl, combine apples and pineapple and its juice. Once apples are covered in juice, sprinkle pudding mix over them and stir to coat. Fold in Cool Whip, and the fold in marshmallows. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
