This salad is really good. I made it for a dinner party and everyone really liked it. I added some tomato slices and peppers instead of the apples and it was still pretty decent. I will make this salad again. Thanks so much for posting it.

This salad is fabulous and so easy, too! I skippd the mustard (out of) and the red onions (just our taste), and mixed everything in a big salad bowl, tossing well, instead of serving on individual plates. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this keeper salad, which we will be having often!
