This really surprised me. I sampled the dressing after it was made, and found it to be quite bland. I thought about spicing it up, but held back...good thing I did. Once everything was combined, it tasted wonderful. I especially loved the crunch of the apple and walnuts. I did find that there was too much dressing, so used less than half the required amount. I also didn't mix the avocado into the salad, but laid them on top so as not to mash them up. Made for a very nice hearty salad. Thanks for entering such a creative salad. Good luck in the contest.

I was unsure what to expect when I selected this salad to make for the contest. I wasn't sure I would enjoy some of the elements together, but WOW! I really liked this & will be making it again. I used the larger suggested amounts in the dressing and was glad I did. (I omitted the salt & pepper from the dressing.) The dressing has a sweet Asian type flavor and really matched well with the ingredients. This salad is chewy, robust, sweet, crunchy, nutty, AND colorful. I served it on leaf lettuce & sprinkled the servings with coarse pink himalayan salt & cracked pepper. Awesome!
