  • “We had this for dinner lastnight and it was a big hit.It was very easy to make.I adapted it alittle by adding diced apples, dried cranberries and I squeezed an orange over it before chilling. We used this as a topping over a mixed blend salad. It was wonderful!!”

  • “Looks soooo goood, I can’t wait to make this!”

  • “Lovely refreshing salad!! We loved it and I will make it again throughout the summer.I would do one thing differently next time, instead of adding the almonds with the rest to chill I will add them just before serving so they will add more crunch.Loved the touch of red pepper flakes.Thanks for posting!!”
