Salad was great. I candied the pecans as well. Loved the dressing, especially with the apples in the salad. Next time will try blue cheese in the salad instead of feta. Dressing would also go great with a Cobb salad.

Sooo good! Used candied walnuts, dried cranberries, and added a little bit of onion. I also made the dressing a little sweeter by cutting the apple cider vinegar and adding some extra syrup. My favorite salad so far!

Turned out great. The only thing I changed was when I candied the pecans instead of raw.

Easy and quick recipe to put together. I love how the different flavors of this salad come together to make a party in my mouth! The salad dressing especially! I’m never going to use jarred salad dressing again, making it fresh is so much better.

I really like it. The dressing is tasty and all the flavors together are great! I substituted cranberries for dried cherries.
