Sugar Free/Fat Free Caramel Apple Salad + 20 Tips for losing weight

I'm excited to share one of my favorite dishes with you today!

Simple...easy...delicious...and healthy!  How can ya beat it?

This is another Weight Watchers recipe - I've tweaked it a bit, but I believe you can count 1/2 c. salad = 2 points.  Hurrah!

Chopping the apples is the hardest part...and you don't even have to get the mixer out!


There have been times when I've made this, taken a taste, put the dish in the fridge, get it back out, take another taste, put it back, get it get the picture!  It's tough to stop eating it!


1 (20 ozs) can crushed pineapple, slightly drained
1 (4-serving size) box sugar free butterscotch
pudding mix
1 (8 ozs) tub frozen fat free whipped topping, thawed
4 unpeeled apples, diced
1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts, chopped

Place pineapple in medium bowl. Stir in dry pudding mix and blend well. Add whipped topping, and stir in apples and nuts.
(I prefer to add nuts on top as they tend to soften)

You might want to make this while your family is gone - that way they'll never have to know you made it.  *-*
