From Vegetarian cookbook by Nava Atlas. I love her cookbooks. Recipe has only a few minor changes. Try this as a filling in pita pockets!

We loved this salad for a nice light summer lunch. The crunchy pistachios and tart apples are a wonderful combination and the dressing was to die for! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 8 :)

Tasty crunchy salad, one of my faves! I really enjoyed the zing from the curry and cinnamon. I did reduce the recipe to 1 serving and enjoyed it for a light lunch. Thanks for sharing, Cookgirl!

Very good, kind of like an Indian waldorf salad. Very crisp and refreshing side to go with the spicy Indian food we had last night. Thanks Cookgirl! Made for ZWT8 trip to India.
