Mia’s Apple Salad
While this very versatile recipe is super simple, it is also surprisingly delicious. Try it tonight alongside dinner or tomorrow morning at breakfast.
3 medium apples or 4 small apples*
6 ounces lemon or lime flavored soy, almond or coconut yogurt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup pomegranate arils
Core and dice apples (leave skin on) and combine with yogurt and cinnamon. Divide mixture into 4 servings and sprinkle each one with 2 Tbsp of pomegranate arils.
Shop Smart Tip: Any variety of apples can be used. A mixture of red and green looks great. Pears are also fantastic in place of the apples and will give you even more fiber. You can also use cranberries in place of the pomegranate arils.
