Best Apple Recipes

This list of the best apple recipes includes crisp salads with fall fruits and veggies and baked treats like muffins and donuts with cinnamon.

There’s so much to love about apples. With all the different varieties, they work in sweet and savory dishes. Try sliced raw apples in salads with more bitter greens like kale, cabbage and brussels sprouts. Or include apples as a supporting ingredient in soups.

Of course, baking with apples is always a great idea. Cinnamon is pretty much a requirement. Muffins, pies and donuts will fill your kitchen with the most lovely scent—way better than a candle.
