    Cookgirl's Note:

    Grown in Washington state, "Piñata's heirloom parentage (it's a cross between Golden Delicious, and the heirlooms Cox's Orange Pippin, and the Duchess of Oldenburg varieties) gives the apple a unique flavor. Piñata apples are crisp and juicy with all the classic apple flavors that you love, and a unique tropical finish." I discovered this new variety (new to me) during the Holidays and couldn't wait to try them in a recipe! Here's one I found on Growing season for the 'Piñata' apple is December through April here in the PNW. I don't remember where I found the cilantro-lime vinaigrette recipe...somewhere on the net. The vinaigrette recipe will yield more than is necessary for the salad and probably enough for three or four servings.

      I wasn't sure what to rate this recipe. We didn't really care for it, however I couldn't find pinata apples so I used gala. I really didn't like the vanilla in the dressing, but otherwise the dressing was pretty good. I am rating it a 4 instead of a 3 because it has potential and I think others should try it.
