This 5 Minute Apple Cranberry Salad is an easy and healthy snack recipe

Every fall we get bushels of fresh apples from the little apple tree in our yard.  I’m always amazed at how much fruit that tree yields.

There is just something about plucking an apple from a branch and biting into it while it’s still warm from the sunshine.  Pure heaven.

Since I have an abundance of apples, I’m always looking for new apple based recipe.   Recently, I came up with a delicious and easy Apple Cranberry Salad.

I love the crunch of the apples and walnuts, the pops of tartness from the cranberries and the sweetness from the grapes. And, the cinnamon gives the salad a warm and comforting taste.

The best part, though, is that this salad is very satisfying and filling.

It’s also very flexible.  You can swap out the cranberries for pomegranate seeds or cherries.  You can swap the grapes for blueberries or strawberries.  Sometimes, I even add some granola or ground flax.

I used Yoplait Light yogurt in this recipe.  I love that it’s only 90 calories per serving yet it has a rich and flavorful taste.  I also love that it doesn’t contain aspartame.  It’s really the perfect base for this recipe.

You can easily find everything you need to make this snack at Walmart which is very convenient.

  1. Instead of walnuts, why not try granola? It would add great crunch! In fact, I think I’m going to try that today!

  2. Hey Chris,

    This receipe sounds great, but as you know I can’t eat walnuts. Any suggestions of what I could substitute instead of walnuts? I would rather substitute something else in their place instead of just leaving out an ingredient.

    See you soon!
