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.
