You already love apples in sweet desserts like pies, cakes, tarts, and crisps. But this favorite fall fruit works wonders in savory recipes, too. Make it star in salad, pair it with pork, or add it to a grilled cheese sandwich for a crisp crunch.
Apples add their crisp crunch to a colorful salad that would make a great start to a dinner party.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Apples and Maple-Sage Butter
Apples paired with sweet potatoes and maple syrup make a deliciously sweet side that works with anything from pan-seared steak to roasted turkey.
Chicken Burgers with Red Cabbage & Apple Slaw
For a fresh take on a burger, give these chicken patties a try. Apples and celery mixed into the ground chicken give the burgers a subtly sweet, aromatic note, while the bright, creamy slaw provides great crunch.
Sear-Roasted Salmon with Honey-Glazed Fennel
The richness of sear-roasted salmon is contrasted by the bright, sweet-tart salad of apple and fennel that tops it.
Cabbage and Apples with Riesling and Caraway
Apples and cabbage are a classic pairing; the sweetness of the former balances the pungency of the latter. This dish is a perfect match for roast pork loin or sausage, such as bratwurst or boudin blanc.

Curried Parsnip & Apple Soup
Apples that soften when cooked (like Empires, Jonathans, and McIntoshes) make a velvety puréed soup. Curry powder and fresh ginger give the soup a flavor boost, while the chive and apple garnish adds a fresh layer of brightness, calling out the apple flavor.

Creamy brie and crunchy tart-sweet apples complement the salty ham in this hearty sandwich.

Though apples are not cooked with the chicken, they lend their flavor to a savory compote that gets served with it (and which would also be delicious with a pork roast).

With its dried fruit, walnuts, and apples, this sweet-and-savory dish is reminiscent of a Waldorf salad. It’s a great meat-free lunch or side dish for dinner.
