Apple Salad with Cinnamon Cider Vinaigrette

March 9, 2015

Author Notes: The type of apples you use depends on your personal taste. Granny Smith, Pink Lady, and Braeburn tend to be tart and will taste great with this dressing. If you use sweeter apples, such as Fuji or Gala, you may want to leave the honey out of the vinaigrette as the apples will have enough sweetness on their own.
