This salad is very tasty and it's nice and easy to prepare. I love making it in the fall. I typically substitute pecans for the walnuts, since I prefer those.

Eh. I like the mixture of chicken and apples but the dressing wasn't as flavorful as I would have liked. Don't think I'll be making this again.

Best part is the dressing

Wow! Loads of flavour. Tasted like nothing I've had before. We're having it again tonight. The vinaigrette is addictive. Mine came out a lot darker so I'll add a little more chicken next time.

I like the mixture of apples and chicken. I wanted to use the dressing I already had which was poppy-seed. The next time I will use the balsamic dressing.

Made this last week sometime for supper. Loved it! I halved the recipe, but used the same amount of chicken (2 cups.) The curry powder in the vinaigrette was a nice addition & the apples gave the salad a nice crunch. Nice for a summer meal, will definitely make again! Also- very quick to make supper- that scores a point with me. :)
