Let me back up a bit. I am on the Women's Ministry team at my church. Every year we have an annual potluck, that is just for women. It is a time for women to come, eat, fellowship, and learn. There are always several different cooking demonstrations. Occasionally, they have ladies demonstrate how to decorate their homes or other things like that. It is the perfect event to attend right before the holidays when you are searching for new ideas.
A few weeks ago I was approached by Amanda, the woman in charge of the event. She said that she knew I was on Weight Watchers and asked if I had any low-fat recipes to demonstrate at the potluck event coming up in November! I was speechless, she wanted me to do a cooking demonstrate? I was humbled, excited, and a little nervous...but mostly excited. I love food and I have a passion to share healthier foods with other people!
I emailed Amanda several recipes and the one that she and I liked the best was my Caramel Apple Salad recipe. This is a recipe that I found on the Weight Watchers message boards.
To find the complete recipe click the link, Caramel Apple Salad.
Here is a little cooking demonstration preview for all of my readers. I just wish you could taste this!
These are almost all the ingredients you need for one batch of this salad. I forgot to add the lemon juice to this picture, but this is basically it!
I added my lemon juice to the bowl first. As I chopped the granny smith apples into chunks I tossed them in the lemon juice. This helps the apples not turn brown.
Next you add the peanuts and marshmallows. If you are like my husband you will not be able to do this part without eating someone of the marshmallows. It's okay, just don't eat all of them.
In a separate bowl, mix together the cool whip, dry butterscotch pudding mix, and a can of crushed pineapple.
