Good for you and endlessly adaptable! I love having a salad like this for lunch... it's satisfying all on its own.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Serve this salad as a light lunch or alongside a piece of chicken or fish for dinner. Light and refreshing with simple flavors, it's delicious. Apples add crunch and a touch of sweetness. We loved the nuts throughout. A simple dressing has a slight tang and lets the salad flavors shine. Make this your own by adjusting with your favorite nuts or dried fruit.
