I needed a quick and easy, yet colorful and delicious salad for dinner party and found this one. Despite not normally trying out new recipes on guests, it seemed foolproof and it was. It is very tasty and makes a pretty presentation. I am going to make it for Christmas Eve dinner and know everyone will it enjoy it as much as I did. I followed recipe ingredients exactly as written and used the most delicious dressing, from Cindy's Kitchen (sold in NC at Fresh Market) Barcelona Vinaigrette-Mediterranean Style which is sugar and gluten free! This dressing is great on many different salads and it really set off the flavors in this one.
