From Trial and Error. She says: i ate this salad six times in two weeks. six. it is that good. and it wasn't just me that loved it, jason said it's one of the best salads he's ever had. in my opinion, the goat cheese makes it. we had ours with fresh honey crisp apples we picked ourselves, but any firm, sweet apple will do. - I have to agree with her about the awesomeness of this salad. You can easily leave out the chicken to make it a side salad for a meal. I also have successfully made this with pears.

We loved this salad! I made it as our main meal on a steamy day and it was perfect. I will use this dressing on all sorts of salads. Yum! K9 Owned/Lesley
