I wanted something different for a side dish. So,I went on a Zaar hunt! I'm so glad I found this one! I made this as directed. I let it chill for 2 hours and the flavors blended beautifully. Thanks for this great recipe, moxie!!

This was a delicious and sweet side dish! I brought it to a friend's house for dinner last night, and he couldn't stop complimenting me about it! I used cinnamon instead of the allspice, and used McIntosh apples. The spices gave it a great flavor. It was about time I tried this recipe, since I was the one who requested it, lol. Thanks for a keeper, Moxie!

I also omitted the vinegar, in favor of lemon juice, and the allspice in favor of cinnamon, but it made a great, light, sweet salad, nice for breakfast
