It's time . . .time for SALAD!

Let's face it, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means pie, turkey, dressing, gravy, bread, sweet potatoes...and oh, did I mention pie?
This year, I'm starting a new plan.  A few more salads before the holidays to counteract the food marathon that starts on Thanksgiving and goes straight through to New Year's Day.


So, I present to you....salad.  {Bake at 350 style}
Caramel Apple Salad

12 fun-size or 6 large Snickers bars
1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
1 c. milk
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
6-8 Granny Smith apples

Cut the Snickers bars into bite size pieces.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and milk until smooth.  Fold in the Cool Whip.

Cut the apples into chunks.  Stir into the pudding mixture.  Fold in the Snickers.

Top the salad with thin slices of Snickers, chocolate curls or sprinkles to keep it from being mistaken for potato salad.

{This recipe was given to me by my friend Lisa who is honestly one of the healthiest eaters I know.  Lisa...I can't believe this was even in your recipe box!} ;)

So, who's in?  More salads before Thanksgiving? ;)
