Tangy apple slices

Preparation time: 15 minutes.


  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon packed Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for Baking
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper (or more to taste)
  • 2 Granny Smith or Red Delicious apples (about 6 ounces each), cored and thinly sliced


In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, Splenda, and pepper; stir until Splenda dissolves. Place apple slices in a large bowl, drizzle with dressing, and toss to coat well. This dish can be enjoyed alone or on top of salad greens (arugula is especially good) sprinkled with blue cheese and toasted walnuts.
