This was really very good. I made the ingredients per recipe, but made some changes to the dressing. I made a mango curry dressing that is very low fat that I like for other salads. I also have a lot of herbs in my garden so I used mint, parley and tarragon. I like herbs so used closer to 1/4 cup along with a heavy pinch of crushed red pepper flakes. Im a Texan, we like everything spicy. This was such a nice summer salad, can't wait for lunch tommarow.
