      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...

      4 1/2 stars! I made a couple of modifications based on what I had (OK a lot). Substituted rice wine vinegar for the cider, and substituted Dijon for whole grain mustard, and used honey for the brown sugar. I also used only pears and pineapple. This may have changed the whole flavor of the dish but I really liked how the light acidity, complemented the sweetness of the fruit and how the mustard emulsified the oil for the dressing, and the dill added that unexpected flair of flavor. Delicious!
