Yummy! I used yellow squash and zucchini added even more color. I only had 2 apples but wish I had all 3. I agree that it needs to marinade at least over night!

I didn't have red wine vinegar on hand, and so substituted champagne vinegar. Honestly, it was not a bad salad, but it didn't hit a chord with any of my family. Maybe the red wine vinegar is critical to this dish. I wouldn't let my experience stop you from trying this salad. It has merits. It is crunchy, tart and sweet. Maybe it will be better tomorrow. I served it after only one hour in the refrigerator. I think it would benefit from another textural element. Everything in it is crunchy.

I loved it! and my husband (the picky one, told me it was awesome!) It is not so sweet, neither dry or oily because of the dressing... the perfect flavour and notes of the green pepper.

This recipe is awesome! Great for end of summer zucchini harvest when you can't stand any more zucchini bread!

I omitted onion and let it marinate for 8 hours and it tasted great! I might add dried cranberries next time too.

I loved the combination of the apple and zucchini. I think that beyond that, you have the option of adding a lot of things. The only thing I changed was that a yellow pepper instead of green and I added about a tablespoon of chopped mint and juice of half of a lime- for some added punch. Will make this again.

I made this for a potluck at work and it turned out good. Make it the night before though to let everything marinate. The only problem I had was that this makes a LOT of salad, so I ended up with quite a bit leftover. It held up pretty well, but I can only eat so much of this salad in a week and my husband is allergic to apples, so he was no help. Otherwise, yum!
