The tart, crisp apples, sweet cranberries, tangy blue cheese, crunchy walnuts and luscious spinach make this a great salad.

The honey and mustard are key to the dressing.

    Salads with fruits rank high on my list of favorites. Even better, my kids always ate them, and sometimes managed to get some spinach or lettuce in doing so!
