Reviews for Fresh Apple & Pear Salad
"Made this exactly as instructed with dill (couldn't find tarragon)... Simple, refreshing and surprisingly very tasty. I never thought the mustard vinaigrette would work with fresh fruit, but I was mistaken -- it is so yummy. Took it to the office and shared at lunch -- it was a hit (especially with my vegan boss)!"
"Simple to make and great flavors!"
"I cut way back on the red onion and dill and it's very good. It was a little overpowering otherwise."
"I liked this and it was really easy to put together. However, I took it to a family party and there were definitely leftovers and no one really commented on it."
"This salad is wonderful! I made it with fresh tarragon, which we really enjoyed; however, the dill also sounds delicious, so I will be making it again soon!"
