My brother claims that this salad, "Tastes like fall." It's true, it really does once you think about it - apples, cinnamon, craisins, pecans. It weirded him out because we were eating it in April, but I had just thought up the recipe and really wanted to give it a try. (And test it out on unsuspecting victims.) I personally think it's yummy to eat year round, but it definitely is right at home now that apples are in season and there's a chill in the air. Plus, it's really easy and healthy.
In a large bowl, mix the yogurt and cinnamon until combined.
Chop apples into small pieces. I use Pink Lady apples in this recipe because they are some of my favorites. They're dense, crunchy and have a little bit of tartness to them.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir.
It's that easy, people! Take a bite and taste fall.
