    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    This is just a wonderful salad with a great combination of flavors with the sweetness of the fruit and the tartness of the dressing and cheese. It is a spin-off of LonghornMama's Fruit 'n' Veggie Salad which is also a great salad. I made this again for my Easter weekend meal and added about 1/2 cup of dried bananas to it and would highly recommend doing that in the original recipe. :)

      I really enjoyed this. I love spinach salad and really enjoyed the addition of apples and apricots. Plus the familiar combination of sunflower seeds and broccoli made this great. My only change would be to reduce the amount of honey in the dressing...I like my dressing a little more "balsalmic". Thanks for posting a great salad!

      This made a fantastic lunch for me today! I loved the addition of apricots and green apples, since I have plenty of them. I halved this recipe since it was just for me. I will have the rest tomorrow! Thanks for posting.

      I usually don't like fruit in my green salads, but it really worked here. DBF loved this, rating it 5+ stars, which is high praise from him. I found the dressing to be a little too sweet for my tastes, so I may cut back on the honey next time. The only real change I made was to use dried cranberries instead of raisins. The apricots didn't travel so well to class, so I may use dried next time if I won't be eating it right away. Thanks for posting Nimz!
