This colorful traditional salad is one of my mother-in-law's favorites. It's fun to eat because of its crunchy texture, and the raisins give a slightly sweet flavor. Plus, it's easy to prepare. —Denise Baumert, Dalhart, Texas
Ever since my niece gave me this recipe, I've shared it with many of my friends. The crunchy golden brown topping and colorful ingredients present a tantalizing dish. It's my favorite brunch entree to serve.

"This is an adaptation of a salad I tasted at a restaurant. The combination of cheese and apples is delicious," says Debbie Blackburn of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. "I came up with the dressing recipe, which has a fruity flavor and creamy texture."
