This fun combination of ingredients comes together beautifully in one flavor-packed dish. Crunchy apples and ripe, juicy pears are fantastic tossed with crisp, cool cucumbers and a spicy dressing. —Jean Ecos, Hartland, Wisconsin

"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)!"

"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!"

"Recipe turned out very well. Cut all into small size pieces and doubled dressing as I like extra sauce. Used dijon as I didnt have spicy brown. Paired it with a sweet marinated grill pork chop and then had the left over salad with pork patty sausage and fried potatoes for breakfast! Great the next morning!"
