    Lorrie in Montreal's Note:

    It's fresh tasting and VERY healthy! You can substitute other fruit such as strawberries or blueberries for the grapes, or other types of melon.

      A fabulously, refreshingly delicious salad. :) The recipe sounded as if it would make a huge quantity - making it a great salad for serving to guests - so I halved it. I used baby spinach leaves (one of my staple foods!) and green seedless grapes. YUM! And the other options sound equally delicious. Heeding CaliforniaJan's warning about the onion, I used red onion in the dressing. A great blend of flavours made for a really delicious dressing for this very different salad which I enjoyed with today's take-to-work lunch and then again tonight with Marinated Baked Chicken Breasts. This salad would be great with any meat or pasta dish. I made this on a mild day but it's a recipe that would be fantastic on the hottest of days with BBQd meats. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Lorrie. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

      This is as pretty to look at as it is delicious. I made it with red grapes and it was excellent. We also loved the dressing. My only caution is to check your onion, mine was too "hot" and we had to take some out. If you are able to get a sweet Vidalia-type, that would be amazing. Made for Photo Tag game.
