Salads have never really been my thing. Until lately . . . I hate the basic salad of lettuce, carrots, tomatoes. Blech! But I’ve recently begun experimenting with specialty salads and I just gotta say I REALLY LOVE SALADS NOW! Haha! The dressing for this salad is out of this world, and as for the fruit, you can change out the apples for any fresh fruit you’d like! Some great substitutes are blueberries, strawberries, grapes, raspberries or mandarin oranges. The lettuce is also interchangeable with other varieties. I happen to live in the boonies where it is very difficult to get good lettuce without travelling at least an hour, so I mainly stick with packaged romaine, but red and green leaf lettuces are my favorites.
