The dressing is sweet from all that sugar, but tempered nicely by the mustard. It's perfect over the peppery watercress though, so don't swap out a different green. My apricots were just so-so, but I had the most perfect cherries ever the night I made this. Delish.

Can't believe this hasn't been reviewed! It's been a go-to for me for years. I take it to pot lucks and always get raves and requests for the recipe. I'll admit the combination of favors does sound a little weird, but believe me, it works. I do use a little more greens than called for, and I toss it all together after assembling just before serving. It's a keeper!
