Sweet-tart apples, like Braeburn or Empire, pair well with Parmesan cheese here. You can also try this salad with a Bartlett or Bosc pear and blue cheese. —Anna Russell, Peterborough, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2011

"I added grilled chicken to this to make it more of a meal and I added the dressing separately for a lighter touch, but it was awesome. My kids (ages 5 & 7 ) even loved it and asked for more. My son who hates chicken ate all of it. Definitely a keeper."
