I love that I have been given the chance to read through our new cookbook and try some of the recipes - so yummy! With honeycrisp apples already available in the Country Store and pick-your-own honeycrisp apples opening this weekend, I was determined to find a recipe that utilizes my new favorite apple. So good - I hope you enjoy this salad, too!

To prepare vinaigrette: mix oil, vinegar, mustard, and garlic in small bowl and wire whisk until well blended. Season with pepper.
