For many years now, this is our family's go to, Caramel Apple Salad. It shows up at all of our get togethers. It wouldn't be a party without it! The kids would be upset!

This salad, needs a little prep, because you have to start it the day before, for chilling purposes. But we all know it, and we don't care! LOL!! Enjoy!!
