This is good anytime for my family. We love apples. It's a dessert that is good for you too. Very healthy.

Triple Apple Salad is appropriate since I made it three times back to back. The almond extract highlights the apple flavor. My apples did settle down to the bottom each time (even when I diced them small) so I think that's the way it's supposed to be. I made the first time in a small ring mold but the applesauce-y mixture stuck a little bit (sprayed with Pam) and found it to be more suited to a small glass bowl. I sprinkled a little cinnamon on my servings, which I really enjoyed. My daughter liked it, too, and she doesn't like applesauce but loves apples. Thanks Melanie, for posting. Roxygirl
