Here we are, the end of June. Children are now home all day long, they have friends dropping by at any time of day or night – hey, school’s out for summer! Or maybe your kids are going to day camp, and need to take snacks or lunches. Whatever your situation, there’s probably travel involved.
Some moms are like Alice from the Brady Bunch, with a magical never-ending supply of snacks. Others may be more like me. I go to the kitchen, open the cabinet or refrigerator, and ask myself “what can I put with what?”
This recipe comes from www.kraftrecipes.com, where my search for “fruit salad” and “under 10 minutes” kept me busy for a while. Finally it came down to this one, with simple ingredients and an elegant, fancy presentation. This salad can be served as in the photo for a dinner with your sweetheart, prepare it in a container for a picnic – or to keep in your cooler for a family outing to the amusement park. (We all know the feeling of “HOW MUCH FOR A HOT DOG?“)
I think the most difficult part of this recipe is slicing the apples. Please be careful when working with knives! (Nutritional information is at the bottom)
