Goldrush, a recent apple cultivar, has a nice balance of sweetness and acidity that's ideal for this salad. Other suitable varieties include Albemarle (Newtown) Pippin, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, Golden Russet, and Roxbury Russet.
Super easy and very flavorful! I'm not normally one for raw onion, but it was excellent in this salad. The dressing was a surprise too! Just the right amount of tang. I'll make this one again for sure!

Excellent, light dressing. Used Gala apple and Gorgonzola cheese and took the suggestion to sprinkle a few chopped walnuts on top. Made a very nice pairing with CL's Orange-Saffron Shrimp & Snapper Stew.
