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.

I love that this salad is different. The nuts added an unexpected crunch.

This was so easy to make, it was a big hit with the kids, they were so amazed it tasted just like a taffy apple.
