Autumn Apple Salad

Recipe by echo echo

This was a fabulous salad adapted from a recipe from last month's (Oct 2004) issue of Cooking Light. Their recipe called for blue cheese, but I've also used an herbed feta cheese.

Great salad. The dressing was a little too mustardy for my taste. I made it again with more orange than lime juice and less mustard and liked it very much.
