Ingredients
  • 6 Granny Smith apples
  • 2 cups diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup raisins

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Slice 1/4 of the top off of each apple and reserve. Using melon baller, scoop out the apple flesh to leave a hollow cavity (which will be filled with finished salad). Coarsely chop the apple flesh and mix with the remaining ingredients in large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the mixture in each hollowed out apple and place the reserved tops on the filling (any unused filling can be refrigerated for up to 1 day). Serve cold or at room temperature.

  • Cook's Note: To prevent the apples from turning brown while preparing the filling, place them in a bowl of water with the juice of 2 limes added.
