    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    Quick, simple, and easy to prepare. This is a great dish to bring to a potluck or cookout. It vanishes every time! I recommend tossing the dressing and ingredients with the lettuce and spinach right before serving.

      First salad I have given 5 stars! I really enjoyed this combination, and the dressing was very complimentary. Typically I end up not even useing the dressing given in a recipe with a salad. I usually hate "oily vinegrettes" but this one was lovely! Sweet with a nice tang. Since there are only two of us I simply used a bag of mixed feild greens and divided up the ingredients into two salad bowls (eyeballing the ammounts) and served the dressing on the side (halved the recipe). All I had on hand were raw cachews so I toasted them a little and all was well. I would make this again!

      I really loved this. I have never had a salad quite like this, and I must tell you that this is the first time that I have enjoyed dressing on my salad. I have been eating salads since i was a kid, and I have never used dressing. I was daring and decided to use this dressing, and I must tell you that I loved it!! I used the raw onion (which I probably shouldnt have done with my stomach!! lol) but it was so little that i didnt think it would hurt too much. The dressing was very sweet and delightful along with the spinach and the cheese and cashews. The apples were such a wonderful addition to this recipe. I recommend this recipe to anyone who thinks they dont like dressing or salads... this is definitely a mind changer hehe Ive never thought about putting apples on a salad... what a wonderful thing! :-) I used cheddar cheese because Im not a huge fan of swiss. I also used a mixture of fresh greens, and loads of fresh baby spinach (I love spinach!!!) I cut the recipe down a lot, because 12 servings is just way too much for 2 lol Thanks for this recipe! I cant wait to make this again!

      I used a mixture of spinach and spring mix, granny smith apple, and gouda cheese and made a third of the recipe. It was a very lovely salad and we enjoyed the change of pace. I must not have tossed the salad well enough as I encountered pockets of sugar which was detracting. I would probably enjoy it more with less sugar in the dressing. I omitted the onion in the dressing because I didn't feel like worrying about a teaspoon of onion, but I bet it adds to the dressing. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 tag.
