"<p>I made this recipe for a women's brunch this past weekend and everyone said it was delicious! My husband also loved it and a woman who took some home emailed later to ask for the recipe because her husband requested it!  I made it as written, but ended up with a lot of leftover dressing, so maybe would cut that in half next time. To prep it ahead of serving, I tossed the apples in the dressing which kept them from turning brown, then added them, dressing and all, to the salad at serving time. It's a fair amount of prep work, but really worth it for a great tasting and special winter salad.</p>"

"This salad really tasted awful. I hate to say that about any recipe, but it's the truth with this one."
