"I used Cortland Apple's since they were in my house; made a big salad with lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, cucumber, onion, with raspberry vinaigrette dressing and it was a delicious meal!"

"Subbed stone-ground mustard with dijon and added a bag of baby spinach, the sweet and tangy flavors of this dish were a HUGE hit. Not to mention it was a breeze to make!"
