Reviews for Apple Salad with Maple-Mustard Vinaigrette
"I think this would be a good salad for any holiday gathering. I made it for Thanksgiving last year. It was a hit. All the ingredients taste great together. I liked the crunch from the apples and walnuts. The vinaigrette flavor is a nice change from bottled dressings. I only had yellow mustard and white onions so I used them instead of spicy brown mustard and red onions."
"This is delicious! I bought the pre-washed spring mix. I chopped the apple and shook in lemon juice and water so it was ready. I used apple cider instead of the apple juice concentrate. Tossed it all together 5 minutes before we sat down, super easy and as l said delicious. I will make this again and again. Janet VFE"
"Wonderful combination of sweet, savory, and crunchy. The vinaigrette was surprisingly simple and so delicious. I maple-glazed my walnuts, which added sweetness and texture to the salad. Will be making this again!"

"Lovely mix of flavors. I have made this several times in the past two weeks and its fresh and clean taste goes well with many meals. I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing."
"Very good vinaigrette with the surprise taste of maple. I used only 1 tablespoon spicey brown mustard to soften the flavor and to emphasize the maple flavor."
"Very good!! I used olive oil and dijon mustard instead. I also didn't use nuts because I didn't have any, but it was still really good. I took it to a cook out and had many people ask for the recipe:)"
