    This was totally awesome and with ingredients I always have on hand. When I was starting to make the dressing, I saw 2 T Dijon mustard and thought that's just way too much. Well, it's not at all. That amount of Dijon really balances out the soy taste really well. Two ingredients are must in this recipe and they are blue cheese and apples. What a great combination of flavors.

    What a delicious, yet simple salad! The soy sauce in the dressing gives it a unique flavor. I used a Gala apple, but made no other changes. Thanx for sharing your aunt's recipe; I love it!

    Great Salad! Made the dressing as directed with a heaping Tbsp of honey. Substituted spring greens, feta cheese and candied walnuts. Added 1/2 c of dried cranberries. Wonderful!!!!!!!

    Loved this salad, especially the dressing. I did add a little bite more honey to mine. I cut this down for the two of us, but used all the ingredients listed except used a spring mix of greens instead of spinach, since that was what I had. Very nice. Thanks. Made for your Cookathon.
