Very good salad...though I was not crazy about the dressing, but it grows on you as you eat the salad. The dressing is very tangy due to the cider vinegar, but it does blend well with the apples and other ingredients. I had to use Envy apples as I didn't have the others. I think the toasted pecans really added alot to this salad, but then I love pecans. DH and I really enjoyed this. Made for ZWT8 - Spain/Portugal, and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.
