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. 1, 2015

"This salad is so simple to make and is so delicious. I used Gulden's brown mustard since I didn't have honey mustard. The subtle sweetness will likely appeal to kids. Except for slicing the apple right before serving to avoid browning, the few other ingredients can all be prepped in advance. I took this to a potluck and people went back for seconds. I will be making this again."

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."
