This recipe for a Caramel Apple Pretzel Salad will serve at least a dozen people and can easily serve as a dessert or side dish for a meal where a sweeter salad suits the dish that you are serving. That could mean chicken or pork, two meats that really work with something sweet against them, particularly apples. And since apples are a big part of the salad recipe, it might taste great with either of these two meats. These meats also work well with brown sugar and nuts. Again, both of these ingredients are found in this salad, so it could work really nicely as part of a chicken or pork meal. So, what is in this intriguing salad, you ask?

This salad begins with a fabulous recipe for sugared pecans. That is where the already slightly sweet and tender nut is cooked in a mixture of butter and brown sugar. That combination is perfect with pecans. This mixture is allowed to cool, and then added to an apple combination. You can use any apples you like, and a blend is a great choice, rather than just one variety. Cream cheese is blended with a number of ingredients to form a healthy and protein filled dressing that coats all the other ingredients. Finally, and just for fun, a commercial caramel dressing is lightly drizzled over the entire salad.

This salad is a great one for new bakers and cooks to make. It gives them an opportunity to see how fruits can be used to make a sweet salad, and then how something sweet can be served against meats (or fish) as part of a dinner meal. And, you get to eat a yummy salad. Be sure to share; this recipe makes plenty for every one. Enjoy it soon!Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, The Gunny Sack.
