MY REVIEW

Surprised a any poor ratings as this was delicious. I used only one large Granny Smith Apple cut into smaller chunks which I broiled in a cast iron frying pan while the dressing heated up. Used extra syrup and I only use the real stuff. No need to turn the apples. I combined spinach and pecans in bowl and topped it with the cheese. I then poured hot apple and syrup on salad and then hot dressing. Mixed. It was wonderful. The cheese did not clump but instead gently melted. It was really, really good and guests raved and asked for the recipe.

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.

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.
