This salad is fantastic!! I always use spring mix as the bitter lettuce goes well with the orange essence dried cranberries I add as well. You have to be sure to toast the walnuts as it really enhances the flavor. I usually only use 1/3 cup. Usually I leave the skin on the apple and always put the chopped pieces in a bowl with diluted lemon juice to keep from turning brown. Be sure to dry off apples before adding to salad. Newman's Own Light Raspberry Walnut Vinagrette is a must!! Read More

Great salad. However there was too much cheese and apples for the amount of lettuce. Next time I will either double the amount of lettuce - or cut the cheese and apple amounts in half. Read More

Great salad. I would not reccommend adding dressing until last minute as it made my greens kind of limp. Wonderful flavor and presentation. Will make again!! Read More
