I made this recipe but with some simple changes (doesn't everyone?). I ended up using arugula instead of the watercress and they had no endive where I went (unreal) so I ended up using radicchio that I grilled and finely sliced. This salad was a big hit. The way the apples are prepared and presented is impressive. Comments around the table were that the warmth and sweetness of the cheese and apples really worked well with the bitter and nutty greens. This will become a regular salad for us.
