    This is a great sweet-sour and crunchy salad. The mustard perfectly complements the fruit and walnuts.

    Delicious recipe - easy to make and requested often  -  19 Dec 2016


    I should have listened to the comments before trying this recipe. I like to follow the recipe first before changing anything BUT use less onion when you try this. It's an excellent recipe ---- very good, but a cup of red onions over powers the dressing. It was still good with the BIG onion flavor but I imagine better with less. I think next time I will use 1/3 cup. Really good!  -  16 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This salad was WONDERFUL and will definitely make again. My picky dinner guests (parents) loved it as well. The only change I made was to reduce the amount of onion based upon feedback from other reviews. Next time, I will cut up the apples in to smaller pieces (rather than wedges) and I will soak them in a lemon/water bath to keep them from turning brown.  -  09 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
