This is excellent. The combination of flavors went so well with each other. I made just a few changes to suit what I had on hand. I left out the granny smith apples and used toasted walnuts instead of the pine nuts (personal preference) and I misread the dressing directions and used 2 tablespoons of honey instead of tsp. but I liked it that way and will do that again in the future. Thanks for sharing.

I'm mainly reviewing the dressing, as I used it over a different type of salad. I absolutely loved the dressing! It's different from your "normal" poppy seed dressing in that it's dark due to the balsamic vinegar, but that, plus the orange juice, gives it a lovely twist. I used it on my salad (arugula, beets, craisins, goat cheese and sweet onion), as well as on a wrap the next day, and as a dip/drizzle for cold grilled chicken tenderloins for lunch. Extremely versatile. Thanks!

I love this dressing. It's light and a nice change to the overly sweet poppy seed dressings out there. The balsamic vinegar with the orange jc is fabulous!

This dressing was great and easy! I didn't use pine nuts and just simply dressed baby spinach with it and it was wonderful just on it's own. Will definitely use again and again.

The dressing was very tasty. I substituted pecans for the pine nuts, as one of my guests is allergic, and it was still very tasty.

This was a great salad. The dressing was delicious. It was an interesting blend of ingredients. I omitted the apples because we just aren't fond of them. This recipe is definetely a keeper.
