Kitchen essentials for tasty recipes like this apple salad:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of baking and not just cookies! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

For the salad, combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss with dressing

Can I make my own apple chips?

This recipe uses apple chips as a topping. Of course you can always leave them out if you don’t want them…though that leaves out the point of this apple salad, but you can also use this opportunity to learn how to dehydrate your own apples!

You can make them into apple chips which are crispy or you can make dried apples which are just oven dried and less crunch.

Apple chips are really easy to make. If you have an abundance of apples from apple picking or your own fruit tress this is a great recipe that you’ll want to try out!

Is this salad gluten free?

When I prepare this fuji apple salad recipe it is gluten free. You really only need to make sure your spices and ingredients don’t have any hidden gluten as most of the ingredients should naturally be completely free from gluten.

If you need to make this recipe dairy free you can also opt for a cheese that works for your dietary needs. There are lots of vegan and dairy free cheese options out there now which makes life so much easier.

Should I prep this salad in advance?

I don’t think I would make this particular salad recipe in advance. Things like the more delicate greens and the apple slices will get soggy and not be ideal for prepping this fuji apple salad recipe in advance.

The good thing is that this recipe is just about combining ingredients. There’s no real prep work involved in terms of preparing this salad recipe. You can make this recipe in just a few minutes so there’s no real need to make it in advance once you have the ingredients organized and ready to go.

      I think I’d like Fuji apples fresh and thinly sliced myself. I think she is drying or baking the Fuji apples into chips. Ok for some, I just like my apples fresh and juicy, The same goes for pears.
