      Excellent salad, it was a total hit at a potluck, apricots are a nice change for the usual raisins. I find this salad better cold, leftovers the next day are even better just added the toasted cashews at the last minute to keep their crunch. Thanks

      Good salad, would make again, but would tinker with it a smidge. It was subtle and soft, with nice hints of flavour. Thanks!

      I really liked the combination of flavors in this salad, though I did find it needed more salt and pepper. I added a bit more curry powder, but I find I always do :). Also, 1/3 cup of olive oil seemed excessive. In the future I will probably use less. All in all it was a good meal that was quick and easy to make, and used things I tend to have on hand. I will make it again, with some adjustments. Thanks Kelly in TO
