Excellent salad! Simple and quick to put together. I used more lettuce and apples and less than half the dressing.
I'm counting calories, but do I have to count the ones that I licked off my plate? Made for Salad Summer Snapshots.
great flavor combination in this salad, I also added in a small can of white tuna, thanks for sharing Mary!
