Apple, Walnut, and Feta Salad (With dressing to die for)

I love to eat salad, and I love Pioneer Woman. I DVR her show and get so excited to see what she is going to make next. The beauty of her recipes is that I virtually always have her ingredients on hand for any given recipe. It makes for delicious, quick weeknight dinners that don’t disappoint. I made this for a church activity, and it got wonderful reviews! The dressing is my favorite part, you can barely taste the mustard but it gives an added flavor, and the maple syrup and vinegar combined, mmmm! Yummy!
