This salad is delicious – haven’t posted a recipe in a while because I’m too busy cooking, cleaning and trying to get to bed early so I can get my beauty sleep – but this recipe is a keeper and  I found it on food.com – amazing website – double click on the heading apple spinach salad below for a great recipe.  If you don’t like blue cheese, like my children, substitute the blue cheese for cheddar curds – tasted wonderful… Enjoy!
