Healthy Fuji Apple Salad Recipe
by Callie England
Fuji apple salad is delicious and great for lunch or dinner. If you are concerned about the preservatives at a restaurant or a grocery store, then you can make your own preservative-free raw sour cream as shown below.
- .3 C raw sour Cream (see below)
- .25 C organic apple juice concentrate (cascadian farms in the freezer section)
- .25 tsp dijion mustard
Whisk all ingredients together. Set aside.
Raw Sour Cream
- 1 C soaked cashews
- 1 C filtered water
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar (or, coconut vinegar)
- sea salt
In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth.
- Spring salad mix
- 1 cippolini onion (thinly sliced)
- 1 C organic apple chips (I buy the Bare Fruit brand – awesome!)
- 2 T chopped pecans
- .75 C slice cherry tomatoes
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Slowly add dressing and mix well.
I normally make a large batch of raw sour cream and then make multiple dressings, dips and/or sauces out of one batch. What I don’t use, I freeze!
