    Eat Your Vegetables!'s Note:

    This is a great salad for fall when the local farms start offering apple picking. The flavors of the spinach, blue cheese, apples and cider vinaigrette complement each other beautifully. Use a good artisan blue cheese in this.

      My new favorite salad. Perfect as-is. Used fresh picked spinach, granny smith apples, and dried Sour cherries. Amazingly delicious! Love, love, love.

      I switched the sunflower seeds for a mixture of spicy pecans and dried fruit. It received rave reviews when accompanied by sausages, saurkraut, fried potatoes, and whole wheat bread. It will be standard in our entertaining recipe repertoire.

      Love this salad for the Fall time! The apple and the bleu cheese were a great combination for this spinach salad.
