    Really yummy salad

    Debbye Trueman from FRONT ROYAL, VA

    This recipe was easy to make. I used a little less garlic than called for. It was very tasty and I loved every single bite of it. Almost didn't have any left for dinner.

    Rave Reviews

    HEATHER STEPNIEWSKI from NASHVILLE, TN

    I saw this recipe during my search for our Thanksgiving menu and felt it would be perfect. It most definitely was. My husbands family went on and on about how good this salad was. I glazed an abundance of pecans and set the extras out as snacks. The dressing is what knocked everything out of the park. The dressing was simply scrumptious. I would omit the garlic or find the tiniest clove of garlic. It makes a bold statement in this dressing. I will be making this salad again for Christmas with a different set of relatives and I look forward to every bite!

    Yummy - will make again

    Dawn Klein from SHEBOYGAN, WI

    I saw this recipe, in the booklet I got in the mail recently and thought it sounded tasty. When I got home from work, the kids announced that they loved it. We all liked the combination of apples and dried cranberries, with the greens. I had two big helpings!

    This salad is great!

    Beth Schmohl from Richmond, VA

    Really good (and easy!) - but definitely use less garlic in the dressing! I added slices of grilled chicken that had marinated in a cranberry barbeque sauce overnight to make this a "meal salad"

    I'm done, this is wonderful

    Laurel Lynn Bailey from MORRISTOWN, NJ

    I tasted this, but I used a bite less garlic because my kid's are not to fond of the taste. Adding the Turkey adds more protein, to which is so healthy for all. Give it a chance...
