Cinnamon Candy Apple Salad


"My college roommate took me home to her farm for a weekend visit back in 1962. This is a salad we had for dinner one night while I was there. It's been requested of me ever since then. It's a real tasty addition to any meal."

  1. In a medium bowl, add boiling water to the cherry gelatin and stir to dissolve. Carefully add the cinnamon candies. Let them sit for a minute, then stir to dissolve the candies into the gelatin mixture. Once they are fully dissolved, add the cold water. Allow the mixture to sit for ten minutes to come to room temperature.
  2. At room temperature, mix in the apples, celery, and walnuts. Pour gelatin mixture into a decorative mold or serving bowl and refrigerate overnight to set.

My family loved this super-simple recipe! I didn't have any celery in the house, so I used cherry flavored Craisin's instead, and I think I'll stick with that instead of the celery in the futur...

I couldn't resist giving this a try. Three of us loved it and 2 just thought it was okay. I'll probably make again.

I had a problem melting the Red Hots, but it was wonderful.

I made this to go with grilled teriyaki pork tenderloins one night when having company. It was good, but did not compliment the pork as well as I thought it might. It was a little too "spicy" ...

Great for kids not adults
