This elegant salad is perfect beside a centerpiece turkey or lamb. With the crunch of walnuts, sweetness of cinnamon and fresh-picked goodness of apples, it will become a holiday staple.—Lynn Silva, San Diego, CA
I had a similar salad in a restaurant and thought it was great, so I came up with this recipe to prepare at home. I love the way the light, sweet dressing tops the refreshing salad ingredients.

In her Prattville, Alabama kitchen, Amy Hornbuckle bakes these yummy spinach balls without an ounce of guilt. That's because this recipe cut 72% of the cholesterol and 44% of the calories from the original version.
From-scratch French-style dressing is a bold topping that suits the hearty ingredients in this salad. When I make it to share at a get-together, I never have any left over. I take the salad and dressing in disposable containers and come home happily empty-handed.

The L&T tasting panel loved this full-flavored contribution from Jennifer Cain. "When I tasted this tangy salad at a cookout, I immediately asked for the recipe," she writes from Bel Air, Maryland. "Even after I pared it down and added veggies, it was still a hit!"
I have always loved the combination of salmon and orange, but the great thing about this salad is being able to do variations. If you don't have goat cheese, try feta. —Stephanie Matthews, Tempe, Arizona
