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!
