    I tried this salad for a potluck at work and everyone really liked it. It was refreshing. The apple and red onion were nice off setting tastes.

    Loved it. Added 1 tsp of oil to dressing. Will make again.

    I made this salad for an employee retirement luncheon and many people enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. You do not even miss not having oil in the dressing! I would definitely recommend this simple but delicious salad as a bring along dish for a barbeque!

    This reminds me of a terrific salad I would get in a popular restaurant; it was made w/ asian pear and fresh raspberries, some pecans added in as well; YUMMY!

    I have made this salad twice now. The first time I substituted lemon juice for orange juice– yuch! I would definitely stick with the orange juice for the right amount of acidity and taste. Besides my error in judgement though, this is a wonderful salad. I’ll be making it several times this summer I’m sure.

    This salad was really good, loved the dressing, didnt need anything else to be added. My hubby didnt care for it..think itwas the blue cheese crumbles, my mom loved it though!

    I was a little skeptical at first, about making this salad. However, I really enjoyed all the different flavors. I even added a handful of almonds, and brown sugar which added a great twist. This is the best salad, I have ever made hands down.

    LOVED this salad. Very light and summery, but wonderful in the fall. Will definitely make this again.

    love it very much

  • cindy

    Loved it – didn’t have an orange so I substituted with 1T of orange marmalade. It was delish. I’ll make it again and add some thinly sliced mushrooms next time.

    This salad is FANTASTIC! The contrast of flavors between the sweetness of the apple, the savory red onion and the tang of the blue cheese is wonderful! Instead of buying one orange (for just 2 Tbsp of juice), I used the good-quality orange juice that we have every morning with breakfast. That was the only substitution I made. My husband LOVED this and declared this recipe a “keeper”. We will definitely have this in the future — again and again!

  • Claire
