    This looks so delicious! I love the idea of a sweet salad!

  2. Sydney @ Tastefully Frugal says:

    Kendra this looks amazing! I can't wait for my boys to try this!

  3. Kendra says:

    How far ahead can you make this salad before the apple turns? It sounds amazing!!

  4. Cyd says:

    You should be fine to make it the night before and serve the next day. I wouldn't make it any sooner than that. You'll want it to be fresh.

  5. Diann says:

    If you don’t have jut allergies, use snickers bars instead of Twix!

  6. Wanda says:

    Looks delicious

  7. Jill Hamilton says:

    Having this for our Thanksgiving salad this year rather than cranberries. Can't wait to try it.

  8. Suzanne says:

    Does it matter if I use sugar-free pudding mix?

  9. Cyd says:

    We have not used Sugar Free pudding for this recipe.

  10. Julie K says:

    Can you substitute milk for the buttermilk?

  11. Cyd says:

    You should be fine using regular milk. The buttermilk gives it a rich and creamy taste.

  12. Kerri says:

    I can only find 3.4 oz or 5.1 oz boxes of instant pudding. Is this a typo by chance, or has the box size changed?

  13. Momma Cyd says:

    Boxes have shrunk over the years. You can use a large box or two small boxes for this recipe.
