A candied apple salad is designed to enhance the flavor of fresh, crisp tart apples by surrounding them in a sweet and slightly tart sauce. This recipe uses eggs and whipped topping, so avoid leaving the salad in a non-refrigerated place for prolonged periods.
Place the saucepan on the stove and warm to a medium heat.
Combine the sugar, pineapple, flour, egg and vinegar in the saucepan and stir until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and cool.
Combine the apples, sauce and whipped topping in a salad bowl and gently stir together.
Garnish with the chopped dry roasted peanuts and serve.
