Today I am sharing another easy recipe from my childhood: Four Ingredient Apple Fruit Salad! I think my mom would usually peel the apples to make this, but I think leaving the skin on makes it prettier and healthier.

No Substitutions Allowed!

This recipe calls for Miracle Whip, which is “salad dressing.” Miracle Whip tastes a whole lot different than mayonnaise, so don’t try to substitute mayo in this apple salad recipe. Trust me!

If you need to whip up something quickly to take to a small (or large) get together, then this is so easy to make!

It is also a good way to use up apples and/or bananas that need eaten before they go bad.

This apple salad is nostalgic for me because we ate it when I was small.

How to Make the Easiest Ever Four Ingredient Apple Salad:

Core 3 apples. (I used Gala. Any kind of apple will work.)

Slice the apples into bite sized pieces.

Slice 3 bananas right into the bowl using a butter knife.

Add 2 cups of miniature marshmallows.

Then stir in 1/3 to 1/2 cup Miracle Whip. Do NOT substitute mayonnaise. It will not taste right at all.

3 apples. 3 bananas. 2 cups mini marshmallows. 1/3 to 1/2 cup Miracle Whip. That's it! After stirring, refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

This will keep for a day or 2 in the fridge, but it is best eaten the first day. It is an easy dish to take to a potluck. Enjoy!

You can make this fruit salad a little fancier by serving it in an ice cream sundae dish like I did. It would be fun to serve it this way for a tea party or a ladies luncheon, brunch, or shower.
