Seemed like a lot of dressing but we poured the whole thing on and it was too much so I cut up some leftover turkey breast to marinate in the salad and it was enjoyed by all

good, easy recipe. used a steamer for asparagus and they came out overcooked. had a hard time cutting oranges in to segments so i just cut in to chuncks -- membrane and all. didn't seem to affect the taste at all. served with a spinach lasagna and citrus was a good compliment. thanks for sharing.

This was a nice, light salad. I was looking for something with low or no cholesterol and this fit the bill. It was even better the next day. Thanks for the recipe!
