This taffy apple salad makes a light and refreshing dessert that's perfect for potlucks and parties.

Although the recipe calls for the salad to be chilled 8 hours, you can serve it right away if you're short on time. And be prepared--once you make this dish, people will want you to make it again and again!


  • 1 20-ounce can pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 8-ounce container frozen whipped topping (thawed)
  • 4 large apples (diced)
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 2 cups peanuts

Steps to Make It

  1. Drain the liquid from pineapple chunks into a 3-quart saucepan. Add the vinegar, sugar, egg, and flour. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick.

  2. Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl. Add the thawed whipped topping, stirring well to combine.

  3. Add the pineapple chunks, apples, marshmallows and peanuts. Stir well.

  4. Refrigerate for about 8 hours before serving if possible, although it's fine to serve it right away if you're short on time.
