SweeTango apples are a relatively new premium apple variety that combine the best qualities of sweet Honeycrisp and tangy Zestar! apples. They are wonderfully crunchy, with a burst of sweet juice with notes of citrus, honey, and spice. It’s such a crunchy apple, that when the world record for the “loudest crunch of an apple” was set in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2016, the SweeTango was the apple of choice, coming in at 79.1 decibels.
SweeTango apples are in season now and are available in grocery stores across the U.S. and Canada. The season ends when they are gone, typically mid-winter.
And as if these lovely apples need anything more to recommend them, I was thrilled to discover that they don’t brown up either! Yes, I discovered this as I enjoyed the leftovers of this salad from the fridge. Even the next day, the apples were not showing any brown at all! How nice is that?!
Now, about this salad! It features kale mix greens and watercress for the base. On top, are the beautiful SweeTango apples, sliced and fanned. The cranberries are fresh, and are quickly sauteed with sugar to soften and sweeten. There’s toasted pecans and sunflower seeds. And pretty pear roses. To top off this salad, there is goat cheese and a delicious Apple Vinaigrette (also made with fresh SweeTango apple).
You’ll find this Harvest Salad Recipe on the SweeTango website right now. Enjoy!
