LOVE THIS!! It is my new Favorite Salad. Light, crisp and full of flavors. Used head lettuce, cranberries and a Macintosh Apple - fresh, sweet, nutty, spicy and a little salty - all wrapped in mouthful!

Excellent salad!!!! I made a few substitutions for the salad by using green onion, granny smith apple and shredded monterey jack cheese as this is what I had on hand and needed to use up. I left the cranberries/raisins off due to family taste. The only change I might make next time is to use a little less honey in the dressing as it was a little on the sweet side for our tastes. I loved the combination of the flavors of the onion, apples and pecans!!!! Will definitely make this salad again!!! Thanks Al Al for a great recipe. Made for spring PAC 2008.

Terrific salad! I made the version with a cooked chicken breast as a meal and loved it. I made per directions but found I did not have cider vinegar, so used rice vinegar instead. I believe it would have more "pop" with the cider vinegar. I may try adding a bit of lemon zest to the dressing next time for a different flavor. Thanks for posting, Al Al, this one's a keeper!

Great salad! I love these kinds of salads, and this was great with the poppy seed dressing. Thanks!

Outstanding! This definitely is a repeat-repeat recipe. Rather than just romaine, I used a mixed lettuces combination from the farmer's market, which added a lot of nice textural interest. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and love it. Most of the store poppyseed dressings I have tried are too "oniony" for me; this one is perfection.

One of the best salads I have tried in ages. I served this for Rosh Hashannah, you know the apple and honey day. Perfection. The blend of the honey, apple, red onion and feta is a winner all the way. The only change I made was using Unflavored coconut oil in place of unhealthy soybean oil. It worked perfectly. Otherwise don't change a thing.
