The tangy-sweet dressing in this spinach salad beautifully amplifies the apples and cranberries--and the creamy goat cheese transforms it into the perfect salad. Tasters raved about this easy fall salad. If you can't find Pink Lady apples, any sweet, crisp apple is a worthy substitute. Want to make this salad a main meal? Top with some rotisserie chicken, chickpeas or tofu.

I made it twice this weekend -- once as written for a dinner party (it was a hit) and then a second time with the addition of chickpeas and hard-boiled eggs to make it a dinner salad. Read More
