"I made this for a get together as I had all ingredients on hand (Dijon instead of honey mustard and I cut the apples in small chunks). I didn't think I'd like it since I'm just a simple ranch dressing on salad kind of girl so I planned on just trying a little bit. Oh wow, was it good! Not a single bite was left at the end. This is a keeper!"

"This salad is so simple to make and is so delicious. I used Gulden's brown mustard since I didn't have honey mustard. The subtle sweetness will likely appeal to kids. Except for slicing the apple right before serving to avoid browning, the few other ingredients can all be prepped in advance. I took this to a potluck and people went back for seconds. I will be making this again."

"I added grilled chicken to this to make it more of a meal and I added the dressing separately for a lighter touch, but it was awesome. My kids (ages 5 & 7 ) even loved it and asked for more. My son who hates chicken ate all of it. Definitely a keeper."
