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.
