Caramel Apple Salad

Okay folks here goes – I have been sitting on this recipe for a…long…time. We were first introduced to Caramel Apple Salad at a recipe exchange potluck. Both the Mr. and I went nuts for the stuff. We have since made it for numerous gatherings and he is now the resident expert

This is a great time of year for produce!  It is available fresh from local farms, at farmer’s markets or in grocery stores.  There are so many different types of fruits and vegetables to choose from it can almost be overwhelming.  I have been making an effort to pick unfamiliar things when
