Looking for Recipes for Apple Salads?
Want to make homemade, healthy fruit or lettuce salads including apples?
Apples are becoming increasingly popular as an ingredient for fruit salads and for other nutritious salads.
Salads with apples are often prepared as a side dish to a dinner or a buffet table, adding colour, texture, and good taste! And of course adding nutritional value!
Although almost any variety of apples is suitable for a tasty apple salad, if possible, choose a variety of apple which does not turn brown as quickly as other apple types.
Choose apples which are crisp, not overripe and mealy. Red Delicious, Empire, McIntosh, Granny Smith, Courtland, are a few examples of good choices.
For helpful information about what types of apples are most suitable for different recipes,

Fruit Salad with Dressing Suitable for a Crowd
Including apples in your diet is a also a healthy choice. Apples are nutritious, low in calories, contain antioxidants, Vitamin C, natural carbohydrates, potassium, and they are a good source of dietary fibre.
Apples are also a good source of flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties.
It is believed that most of this compound in apples is found in the peel.
Many salads with apples can be prepared with simply washing the apple, and coring it, but leaving the peel on.
I find the attractive red or green colouring of the peel adds eye appeal :) to the salad!
