Who said salads have to be boring? With a natural sweetness and the perfect amount of crunch, apples make a great addition to any salad. Try topping your next salad with apples for a fun and healthy option.

Crunchy apples like Honeycrisp are always a favorite, but their successor, SweeTango®, is part sweet, part tangy, with a crunch second to none. Classics like Piñata® for a bright, tropical twist or Fuji for a sweet bite would work just as well.
