    Great salad! Lots of flavor.  -  12 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Amended this slightly- did not use the cottage cheese. Also put the apples in the middle with honey, raisins, and grated carrot.  -  18 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not a big fan of the Endive lettuce I guess. Too bitter. I loved the dressing though.  -  23 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
