    bekbek's Note:

    This salad is great all year round -- to me, it just has a springtime flavor that brightens any meal. You may be tempted to increase the garlic (I always am when I read other people's recipes!) but because it's crushed, 1 clove is plenty...and it does get stronger when it sits. Fresh lemon is what makes this salad special, so please don't substitute bottled juice.

      A lovely salad combination! I made the dressing a few hours ahead of time and allowed it to chill. I agree that it's important to use a real lemon. I used gala apples, but pretty much any apple would work, I think. Thanx for sharing!
