Apple Butterscotch Fluff Salad

September 16, 2015
Fresh crunchy apples, crushed pineapple, Cool Whip, butterscotch pudding mix, brown sugar, and marshmallows - such an awesome salad for fall apple picking!

This salad created a bit of controversy in our house when I made it.

Wesley refused to try it, because I mentioned that it was called a "salad." To him, that term usually means "laden with vegetables that I may or may not like." Paul was of course eager to try it, but commented that it looked a bit like queso dip.

Paul wound up devouring his, which I knew he would given the ingredients. Wesley however, DID NOT like the fact that I left the skin on the apple pieces. I actually really love apple skins so this was perfect to me, but believe me I was well informed how to make this for him next time! 

Whatever you do, do not let the looks of this salad fool you - it is insanely good. If you're going apple picking with your family, this is a wonderful way to use those freshly picked apples!

Apple Butterscotch Fluff Salad

  • 3 apples, cored and diced small
  • 8 oz crushed pineapple
  • 8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
  • 3.4 oz pkg butterscotch pudding mix, dry
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • garnish: chopped pecans
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix together apples, pineapple, Cool Whip, pudding mix, and brown sugar until well combined.
  2. Gently stir in miniature marshmallows. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.

The butterscotch flavor really comes through in this salad, along with the mini marshmallows and apples. It's great for those still-hot days in the beginning of fall when you just want to break out all the pumpkin spice coffee you've been hoarding. I know it's not just me, people - ha!!
