I made this for Friday supper. I was alone so adjusted the measurements. I loved this salad. It was so delicious. <br/>Because I had all the ingredients on hand I could follow the recipe exactly. It filled me up. It was crunchy and with the blend of dilll (had to use the dried) and everything else, I'm going to make this for Thanksgiving.

With a load of fresh organic apples and pears from a local orchard, this salad was just what I needed when a good friend also brought me some gigantic homegrown cucumbers. Lovely late summer deliciousness. I used dijon mustard and dried dill because that is what I had. I will certainly make this again!

I haven't made this yet... but have an idea for the folks that are not finding it sweet enough... The salad ingredients sound very appealing to me.... One of my go-to "secret ingredients" these days is honey mustard salad dressing... in a bottle. I think that, enhanced with a little fresh dill.. might do the trick for a quick dressing for what sounds like an amazing salad...
