"From Bon Appetit 1995. My sister discovered this, and our entire family has loved it ever since. Try throwing in some crumbled bleu cheese or gorgonzola - tremendous!"

"What a nice salad! The dressing was excellent, the balsamic vinegar works really well. I used walnut oil, which paired nicely, and only used 1/4 cup of it, since we like a lower ratio of oil in our dressing. The chopped fresh cranberries are quite mild -- surprisingly, and I only used one teaspoon of sugar (instead of one tablespoon). For us, it would have been too sweet if I had added any more. I used pink lady apples and they gave it a nice balance of tart and sweet as well. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Wow! My husband and I agreed that this salad is awesome! I made it to go with beef stew and they seemed to compliment each other well, although I did think it was a little too elegant for beef stew. :D Very tasty. I only used 1/2 the oil (well, actually I doubled everything else because I cut up too much onion.) and I forgot all about salt & pepper. I used a granny smith apple. It was such a nice combination of flavors. My 3yo son gobbled up his salad, but my 11yo son handed his over to me. Oh well, more for me!"
"Love the cranberry balsamic dressing - am going to try making it with more cranberries next time for stronger flavor. Based on the other reviews, I used 1/2 cup walnut oil instead of the full cup of vegetable oil, which worked great. Delicious!"
"This is a very nice salad dressing and it works well with the baby greens and crisp apple. The dressing makes quite a bit and we have enjoyed the salad several times. I highly recommend crumbling some feta over the salad."
"Made this pretty much as given, & had one of the most delicious salads ever, but then I also fell in love with the cranberry vinaigrette! The apple used was a very flavorful Honey Crisp, & the toasted walnuts added greatly to an already great tasting salad! I enjoyed it as given, while my other half went whole-hog with the blue cheese! A real keeper, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]"
"This was a really great salad! I loved the tart dressing; it went so well with the granny smith apples and toasted walnuts. I replaced some of the oil (I used olive) with pomegranate juice to save a few calories and sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper. DH said he wished it had some cheese, so next time I'm make it with chevre or gorgonzola."
"What a nice taste sensation! A little sweet, a little tart and some crisp from the apples. I crumbled some real, honest French Roquefort on top. Thanks for posting this!"
