I liked the dressing in this recipe, almost a honey dijon flavor, but very mild. It went well with the fruit & veggies used in the salad. I would have prefered it a tad thicker. I really enjoyed the nuts, cashews & sunflowers kernels are favorites of mine. I omitted the orange when assembling this recipe. The colors of this salad are very pretty. All in all a good choice today for lunch. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
