It's difficult to get excited about a salad, but this one was a winner when I made it for my sous chef mother-in-law and her highly discerning palate. Her daughter loved it too. :)
Delicious and filling, with unique flavors. I made this exactly as shown on the recipe. I will be making it often.
I did not make any changes and it was the hit of a dinner party. The combination of ingredients were perfect. The men and women loved it. I will defiantly make it again. Debs
I've always loved cheddar cheese on apple slices, so this was a must try. It definitely didn't disappoint. So many wonderful flavors in this salad!
