Apples and sharp cheese go so well together! It really is worth the time to toast the almonds, but still good even if you don't have time to toast them.

I love apple, pineapple and the cheese included in this salad. Its taste is delicious with all these good ingredients. It is another version for Waldorf salad which is one of my favorites. I only left out the red onions this time. Thanks for posting this good recipe, Parsley.
