Taffy Apple Salad

Vicki Johnson


When I was a new bride back in 1984, I purchased one of those recipe books where you can write in all your recipes. I set about acquiring recipes from my co-workers. One of them was this Taffy Apple Salad. It is still on that same paper. The recipe still stands the test of time. And yes, it does taste like Taffy Apples.
