    Yummy! I used yellow squash and zucchini added even more color. I only had 2 apples but wish I had all 3. I agree that it needs to marinade at least over night!  -  20 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I am SOOO glad I took a chance and tried this recipe. I was a little skeptical about the ingredients (mostly the part about eating raw zucchini!), but it is awesome! Light and summery, with a great flavor. I brought it to a party and everyone loved it (and I'm pretty sure they weren't lying- haha!). I used one green and 2 red apples and followed the recipe exactly- no changes are needed. Please give this a try- you will be pleasantly surprised! (also- I used one medium zucchini though you could certainly use 2... 2 medium is better than one large zucchini so you can avoid all those huge zucchini seeds)  -  26 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't have red wine vinegar on hand, and so substituted champagne vinegar. Honestly, it was not a bad salad, but it didn't hit a chord with any of my family. Maybe the red wine vinegar is critical to this dish. I wouldn't let my experience stop you from trying this salad. It has merits. It is crunchy, tart and sweet. Maybe it will be better tomorrow. I served it after only one hour in the refrigerator. I think it would benefit from another textural element. Everything in it is crunchy.  -  01 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
