Helpful hints

  • Approximately 2 medium apples yields 3 cups.
  • Make ahead and refrigerate but leave out the peanuts until ready to serve.
  • Peanuts are optional. If included, be sure to use unsalted peanuts; salted peanuts will affect the consistency of the salad. The 1/3 cup of peanuts contributes 32 mg potassium and 17 mg phosphorus per serving.

Caramel Apple Salad

Wouldn't caramel topping and caramel chips be more appropriate since it is called Caramel Apple Salad? Yes you are right. Perhaps we will do a name change to Butterscotch Apple Salad.

It sounds like there's a lot of sugar, and I was told to avoid peanuts (all nuts, in fact). Butterscotch chips and unsalted peanuts are OK then? And the non-fat whipped topping has hydrogenated oils that I've also been told to avoid. Thoughts? Dietitian comment: Look at the total amount of potassium and phosphorus in a serving of the recipe[INVALID]that's what matters more than specific ingredients. You could try real whipped cream.

I made this for lunch. It was good, but sorta sweet. Next time, I will make it with bworn sugar and butter in the frypan,drain the pineapple and add the juce to the fry pan and let is cook down a bit (make my own butterscotch sauce), add the apples and the drained pineapple. I think the sugar count will be lower and the sweetness will not be overpowering. BTW, use the crushed pineapple packed in pineapple unsweetened juice.
