Ruby Apple Salad

This is a pretty salad and tastes good, too. There are 22 apple growers in the county where I live, so I have plenty of fresh apples to use for cooking. Years ago, there used to be local apple contests that my two children and I would enter. One year we made a clean sweep of the awards - and I believe this recipe was one of the winners!

    Does this contain strawberries? It looks like it does.

    I would give this a 10 if possible. I have made it many time snow. Once I ate the whole bowl in two days. I just can;t get enough of it. So refressing!!!! Definately a keeper. As a matter of fact, I always make sure I have all the ingredients on hand at all times.
