I am thrilled to be entering the So Delicious Recipe Spring Fling Dairy-Free contest! I've renamed my entered recipe for the event. My So Delish Apple Salad has been enjoyed by my family for almost 20 years. We went totally dairy-free in 1995 upon realizing that dairy products were the main offender to my family's good health. I then became very aware of the important food choice. Originally made with another dairy-free yogurt, I made the switch when So Delicious Cultured Coconut Milk 'yogurt' was introduced to the market. I don't know what can be better than coconut yumminess and medium chain fatty acids. Thank you So Delicious for that bit of awesomeness!
Now what can say Spring any better than fresh ingredients? My So Delish Apple Salad is not only fresh but quick and easy to make! Nutrient dense, wholesome, natural and fresh ingredients make for a perfect side or main dish, any time, for any occasion, any where and any time of day. It's sure to be a party favorite. You can even have it for breakfast. Sprinkle some ground Flax Seed, unsweetened shredded Coconut or raw Old Fashion Rolled Oats on top!
