November Apple Salad

Apples to Apples: Fall's Favorite Fruit

Oct 27, 2016

When we think of fall, two major ingredients come to mind: apples and pumpkins. Pumpkins tend to be in the spotlight, but one of our favorite November specials is also an apple salad, so we’re just as passionate about this fall staple as many of you are. We’ve compiled a few tips and tricks for how to choose which apples to use in your favorite Pinterest recipes featuring the fall fruit.


For Eating:
These apples tend to be sweeter, with only a slight hint of acidity, like Red Delicious, Royal Gala, Russet, Lady William, Empire, and Fuji.

For Cooking:
Apples used for cooking need to be quite sour and break up easily when they are cooked, like Grenadiers and Newton Wonders.

For Eating and Cooking:
These varieties are good for both! You will need to check your recipe, as specific apples are sometimes called for. Common dual-purpose apples include Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Jonagold, Jonathan, and Golden Delicious.

Now that you know how to pick your apples, share your favorite recipes with us! Stay on the lookout for more of our fall recipes, as well.

And, don't forget to try our November seasonal salad with field greens, red apples, candied walnuts, red onions, gorgonzola and honey-balsamic vinaigrette.
