Farm And Dairy

Apples and peanuts are known as heart-healthy foods. This recipe makes a large bowl of apple salad, perfect for family gatherings or other events. After you make the salad, however, don't be surprised if there's none left by the time your guests arrive. This salad is deeeee-licious!!!! Make the salad with light Cool Whip (or another similar topping) to make it an even more healthy choice.

1 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple

3/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 large container of Cool Whip (or other similar topping)

1 24 ounce jar of dry roasted peanuts

6 to 8 apples (depending upon the size of the apples)

Put the crushed pineapple, sugar, flour and vinegar into a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until thick. When cooled to room temperature, place in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.

Cut the apples into small pieces. Add the pineapple mixture. Stir in Cool Whip (or other topping) and all but 1 cup of the peanuts. Mix thoroughly. Sprinkle the remaining peanuts on top.
