I made this salad and loved it. I will be making it for Thanksgiving. Thanks to the person who shared it.

Unfortunately this salad was a huge disappointment. I won't be making it again and I'm not even sure if I want to serve it. The ingredients just don't go well together and the smell of the cider vinegar coming from it is completely overwhelming.
