    Delicious. I made as directed. For my preference, I would have maybe dressed each salad separately. It was a little more dressing than I care for, but it was still wonderful flavor. Thanks for posting.

    Can't say anything that hasn't already been said LOL This is a total winner - we had it on two days in a row, and I could eat it again right now! The second time I used fresh apricots in place of the apples, and it was great, too. The vinaigrette alone is a dream. Thanks so much for sharing!!<br/>Made for Relax, chat and sip some iced tea / Diabetes Forum
