Very good salad! I made the dressing exactly as directed. The dressing has great flavor and tastes great with the apples. I sliced up a whole apple so there was a lot of fruit in it rather than just a garnishing. I accidentally put too much dressing on the salad so I would add and toss it slowly so you get the amount of dressing you prefer. For our family of four the dressing will make the salad for 2 meals.

Yummo! I added to the salad carrot, red pepper, turkey bacon, using yellow onion. For the dressing I used apple sauce because I didn`t have juice not cooking it and it worked great! I made for the Comfort cafe http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=288536&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=915 Thanks!
