This salad was superb! I followed the recipe, leaving out the lychees, and cutting the celery to 2 stalks. My hubby and I enjoyed this very much. Great with the fresh pineapple! The dressing was perfect with these ingredients. I will make this again!

Wow, this is delicious, even with canned pineapple as I couldn't find a fresh pineapple. I cut the recipe in half for 2 people. I followed the recipe, didn't use the lychees. Love the dressing will try it on other salads. I served the salad on a bed of baby greens, with braised Lamb chops and red potatoes. This will made a great summer salad & a complete dinner.

A fantastic dish and so easy to prepare. Wife raved about it and she doesn't like pineapple. Think next time will toast almonds before adding. Omitted lychees as have no earthly idea what they (it) are (is).
