    Susie D's Note:

    This french inspired salad utilizes blue cheese, thinly sliced apples, and sunflower seeds to perk up a traditional spinach salad. Artisanal cheese works best here as well as a tart apple. Recipe from Vegetarian Times.

      Wonderful!! I used an imported Bleu cheese from Spain and a Granny Smith apple. The vinaigrette was great. I really liked the toasted sunflower seeds in this (a new one for me). Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Switzerland.

      This was the best spinach salad I've ever eaten! Everything about it was great. I did substitute toasted slivered almonds for the sunflower seeds. I'll definetly make again, and again! Thanks for sharing.
