Here’s what you’ll need to make apple salad at home:
Making a batch of this apple salad is great year round. It is full of fresh flavors and textures. I like to serve this up for lunch or a light dinner. If you have everything on hand to make this I suggest you try it right away!
You will need the following items, you can find the full amounts, nutritional info, serving size, and more in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
From the refrigerator we need sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Granny Smith apples, Fuji apples, celery, and butterhead lettuce leaves for serving.
From the pantry you’ll need to grab sugar, dried cranberries, and pecans! It’s a pretty simple lineup of ingredients but the flavors come together so nicely to create a bright, fresh, indulgent salad!
How to make Ruby Tuesday apple salad:
This is a pretty simple recipe. It’s my favorite kind of recipe…it’s ready in a flash and lasts a few days in the refrigerator so I don’t have to worry about potentially throwing away leftovers!
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until the salad is prepared.
Rinse and dice celery and set aside. Chop pecans and set aside. Rinse and dice Granny Smith apple and set aside.
Rinse and dice Fuji or Gala apple and set aside. Combine ingredients and place in a large salad bowl.
Remove the dressing from the fridge and add to the mixing bowl.
Toss ingredients and dressing until well combined. Serve on butter lettuce leaves.
It’s as simple as that. Everything goes together into one bowl, feel free to throw your ingredients into the larger mixing bowl as you are chopping them up. I try to keep everything in similarly sized pieces but you can prepare yours however you like it!
You can serve this Ruby Tuesday apple salad on any kind of lettuce, I like butter lettuce because the leaves are very pliable and soft, with a mild flavor and texture. It doesn’t take away or add to the recipe really which makes it a great vessel for serving up this tasty apple salad.
Do you have other Ruby Tuesday recipes I can try?!
If you haven’t tried the potato soup yet…it’s a must. So simple and packed with flavor. Another must try recipe is the white chicken chili from Ruby Tuesday. It’s great all year long and perfect for meal prep. Ruby Tuesday biscuits are always a hit in our house and when it comes time for a party or backyard BBQ I whip up a batch of the Ruby Tuesday broccoli salad or the baked potato salad. Both are always a hit!
