How very interesting! I was really impressed with the different dimensions of flavors. Sadly, I didn't have any almonds, but everything else came together really nicely. I loaded up on the black pepper to balance out the sweetness. Served over spinach. Would be a great picnic salad, great for a luncheon, for do as I did and enjoy as a light dinner. Veg Swap Oct '11.
