3 or 4 apples, unpeeled, cut from the core, and chopped into bite size pieces (about 3 cups)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup grape
1/4 big bag of regular marshmallows
2/3 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup walnuts (optional)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sugar
Don't bother peeling the apples unless their skins are really unattractive. Cut up 3 or 4 of them, until you get about 2-1/2 or 3 cups of chopped apples. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the apples. The acid in the lemon juice prevents the apples from turning brown. Cut up the grapes into two halves. Chop up the celery, it should take about 2 stalks or so. I add black walnuts because I get them for free, but you can use regular walnuts or omit them completely if you don't have any handy. Cut the Mash mellows into eighths using scissors and dipping the scissors into a glass of water to "clean them of stickiness. Mix everything together in a medium sized bowl with the mayonnaise and sugar, coating all of the ingredients with the mayonnaise. It is now ready to serve, or you can chill it overnight and serve it tomorrow instead. This is so crunchy and chewy, it is perfect contrast for a meal which is soft, or easy to chew. This recipe serves 6.
*note: you can add bananas or substitute some things for others. But I would keep the celery and the nuts for the crunchiness.
** I pulled this recipe off the net but I modified it to read the way my family makes it. I also want to note that my family uses powdered sugar and mayo and cool whip. But I don't know the proportions. Plus they have cherries too.
Another "cool" eats recipe.
