“Eating the skin of apples provides about twice the anti-cancer activity as eating only the pulp, Cornell University studies show. That's why this recipe says not to peel the apple. You may wonder about the hefty amount of fat in each serving. Don't: 90% of it is good monounsaturated fat from avocado and pecans.”

We'll have this again for sure! My hubby and I are salad freaks and really enjoyed this one. I used a different blue cheese dressing recipe; that was the only change I made. Fantastic!

I loved the combination of flavors in this salad. I made it as described but my onions were too sharp so we picked them out. This dressing is light and I ended up dipping pita in the leftovers. Voted 5 * by all three of my "tasters".

I really liked the combo of the apple and blue cheese dressing (though I used a bottled version). I was forced to omit the avocado because mine wasn't ripe enough. Very good!
