I have made this recipe twice now and everyone who tried it loved it. This is now my fav to make, way easier than potato salad. Thanks.
Tried this tonight for dinner with some substitutions. Instead of red onion used green, no apples used a nice ripe peach. But your dressing was what made it great! Never liked the taste of curry before.
