"Traditional savory dish, great with roast pork or pork chops. Chilled with some added bacon bits, it makes a great summer BBQ salad."

This is a great recipe! my family makes this dish in the fall every year. My mom-mom cooks bacon with the apples though and she adds a touch of brown sugar. Everyone loves it!!!


Loved this! My husband is allergic to red onions so I used a Vidalia onion instead. So yummy!


Scaled this down to 2 servings and used Gala and Granny Smith apples. Most cooked apple dishes are sweet, so this is a really nice change for a savory side dish which was served warm with a pork entree. Next time I make this, I will add some crumbled crisp bacon as suggested by the recipe author, as that should only enhance its savoriness. Thanks Jin for sharing your recipe, this is a good one!
