Turkey Apple Salad

I’ve been trying to eat healthier this year.  This is one of those great dishes that you wish you ate more of after you put your plate in the dishwasher.  This would be great to eat around Christmas time because of its coloring.  On Thanksgiving the Hubby and I made two turkeys; one for eating on the big day and one for shredding and putting in freezer bags to save for a rainy day.  I was so glad I decided to pull one of those bags out for a yummy turkey dinner night.   I got the original recipe from pinterest, but made quite a few changes to it so now the recipe is mine.  I apologize because my measurement aren’t really exact, because I don’t always measure everything, but they are pretty good estimates.  Happy eating!

1 large Granny Smith or Gala apple chopped into little pieces

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another.  Combine them both and refrigerate until ready to eat.  Voila! Num num num num.
