Apple Tossed Salad

My husband doesn't normally like apples in his salad, but he really likes this. It has a nice mixture of ingredients and is very easy to make.

    This is a good salad. Vinegar is a little too strong for me unless I add a bit of sugar to it (depending on what it's used in), and I found it more to my taste when I did this with leftover salad. I think maybe a couple teaspoons or a tablespoon added to the ingredients for the dressing would help it...... for me anyway. I forgot to sprinkle on the sunflower seeds/walnuts. I'm sure that adds to it too.

    My husband and I are on the Atkins Weight Loss Program and I am always looking for new low carb recipes and this one is fantastic! I made this yesterday to take to a family Thanksgiving dinner and it got rave reviews.
