Mosey on over to the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday and you'll find this sweet, creamy apple salad somewhere down at the end. It's a simple recipe to clone with just nine ingredients, and it makes a great side for any casual cookout, picnic, reunion, or mandatory boring office party. Dried cranberries rehydrate to add notes of concentrated sweetness, and the celery and chopped pecans contribute extra crunch. You'll need two kinds of apples—one green and one red. Plan ahead on this one so that you can let the salad sit for several hours before you serve it. It tastes much better after a good fridge nap. This recipe yields enough for 6 servings, but it can easily be doubled or quadrupled to fill more mouths.

The flavors shine through without the added sugar. Add only enough "to taste".

I have been making this for years, using almost the exact same recipe but for one small change... I don't use sugar, mayo, or sour cream for the dressing, but instead use one regular size container of vanilla Yoplait yogurt. It is the perfect amount of dressing for the same amount of ingredients as listed - and super easy!
