This recipe won over our judges in one of our side dish recipe contests! This salad features a full serving of apples, a fair amount of sweetness and caramel and a hint of nuts. It's a favorite fall flavor of caramel apples in a dish!

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ LA LECHERA Dulce de Leche
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt (such as fleur de sel)

In a large mixing bowl, toss chopped apples gently with lemon juice; reserve.

Using an electric mixer, blend together cream cheese and sour cream until smooth and light; add dulce de leche and vanilla, blending well. Spoon into mixing bowl with apples, stirring gently until well blended. Place into a 13 x 9-inch (or similar sized) dish. Sprinkle with pecans and very lightly with salt just prior to serving.

Recommended apples for this dish are: Fuji, Gala, Honeycrisp, Jonagold.

For best results, be sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before combining with the remaining ingredients.
