Easy Green Bean Apple Salad

green bean apple salad recipe

I can’t believe yesterday was the first day of Spring!

Happy Spring peeps!

2015 has been flying by for our family. We made a huge career change and then moved across the US to Kauai. Island life is beautiful…. but I do miss the hectic chaos of Big City living. Last week I had my second shoulder operated on, I have to say life has been tough without my right hand :) … 5 more weeks to go in this crazy sling!

I also recently found out I am allergic to gluten, dairy, soy and eggs. Due to my upcoming dietary restrictions there will be changes to the way I cook, meaning more allergy friendly recipes posted for you guys! Although things have been slightly unpredictable around here, I am so grateful for the wonderful life I have. Thank you to all of you who have read, continue to read, or are new to my blog! I look forward to hearing from you all. And don’t forget I love suggestions or ideas for recipes or new posts!

I hope 2015 has treated you great so far!

Ok. Back to the the recipe. I made this salad the other night while I was dreaming of crisp Fall nights…. in case you were wondering, no that doesn’t happen here 😉 This easy salad is perfect to serve as a larger portion for main dish vegan dish! Just add some yummy rolls and Viola! The most amazing dinner!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
