Very tasty salad! I served this as a one-dish meal for my husband and me. I didn't have angel hair so I used spaghetti, nor did I have enough almonds so I threw in a handful of pinenuts. I also used red pepper flakes instead of white pepper and I added soy sauce and sesame oil to give it more of an Asian flair. So I discovered this is a very versatile dish with flexible ingredients! I might add mandarin oranges next time...
