Delicious! We loved this salad. I cut up the Brie but did not add it to the serving bowl based on other comments. Instead, I served it on the side so we could add it to our individual dishes.

I make this salad for parties a lot and people just love it! I've simplified it over the years... I use raw apples instead of cooking them, and I don't bother toasting the pecans. Also, I pop the brie in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before I cut it to keep it from being too soft, and then I toss the cubes with a few spoonfuls of the dressing to keep them from sticking together.

I really love this salad because it great combination. Instead cooking the apple I cut them up into chuck. I don't like cooked apples very well.

MY REVIEW

Not too impressed with this salad. It just didn't have that much flavor. After broiling the apples for 3 minutes, they were soft. The brie wanted to stick together and the dressing just didn't give much flavor. Not a disaster but not one I'd make again.
