About This Recipe

Many unusual recipes have called themselves “salad.” This recipe for Snickers Salad (yes, it really does use the candy bar), is quite peculiar and native to the Midwest. And it’s delicious, once you get used to the thought that you are eating candy as part of a “salad.”

Tart apples and dried cranberries moderate the sweet flavor of the candy somewhat. Still, I think this recipe could be served as dessert!

You should try this recipe once in your life, just for entertainment and historical value. You may love it! I do!
