Tangy vinaigrette goes beautifully with tart apples, peppery watercress, and pungent blue cheese. The dressing can be prepared up to three days ahead; refrigerate it in a jar, and shake well before tossing with the salad. A garnish of chopped toasted pecans adds texture and flavor.

This salad wasn't at all bad, in fact i loved the combination of apples and blue cheese and will keep that combination in mind when making other salads. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is because I found I couldn't even really taste the dressing since the cheese and apples have such strong flavors. I would make the actual salad again except this time I would probably just make a simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing.

Lovely salad to accompany a special meal. The dressing is outstanding, and I usually double it to have some on hand for additional salads. Definitely would serve to company.
