Fuji Apple Salad

Apple salad1

I am really excited to share this salad recipe with you!  It tastes just like a salad you would get at a restaurant, but all of it is homemade and healthy!  The idea for this salad actually came from the following pin.

This salad and my salad only have spring greens in common, but that was what sparked my idea.  I wanted to use spring greens as a base, then go from there, and that I did!  I made a really big batch of baked apple chips a little while back, so I wanted to include these, and I also knew I was going for a sweet and salty kind of taste, which is my favorite when it comes to salads.
