I use green apple and I soak the raisins in hot juice and drain well before adding to the salad. This is also good with sour cream with a little vanilla flavoring stirred in. My kids like this as a breakfast salad, I like it wrapped in leftover ham.
I made this for my 3-year old for lunch today and she said it was too "spicy", so yup, the cinnamon's a bit over-kill. Otherwise, I followed the recipe w/ the exception of using 1 c. of thinly-sliced baby carrots, toasting the walnuts, and only using 1 apple. It's a great recipe (and we love the name "Bunny Salad"), so we'll definitely make it again, but decrease the cinnamon, and maybe sub plain or Greek yogurt for vanilla, and up the celery to more than 1 stalk.
We loved this recipe! Based on other reviews I added only a teaspoon of cinnamon and used craisins instead of raisins. It was a hit at Thanksgiving this year.
Made for Easter Bar B-Q, had way to much left over to be happy with this recipe. I followed the other reviewers suggestions and lessened the cinnimon.
Was a good salad~ took to a pot luck. Had to go less on the cinnamon, Wasway too much
Every child ate it! My mother-in-law said it looked very "Food Network". :) Also, I prepared mine the night before and had no problems with discoloration or soggy-ness.
I used less than 1/2 the cinnamon and didn't care for the flavor in this combination. I would leave the cinnamon out and maybe add some pineapple tidbits.
I didn't have time to grate, so I thinly sliced the baby carrots. I also added some sunflower seeds on top. This is a good salad. I'll find out tomorrow if my kids like it.
