      I agree with Tinkerbell, this salad has a lot of potential. I also added some olive oil to dress the salad. The lime juice adds a nice brightness. Next time I may use the zest as well for added flavor. Made for PAC Spring 2012.

      A really good base recipe that has lots of potential. The fresh lime was great, but after tasting, I felt it was missing a little something as far as dressing goes. I added a splash of rice wine vinegar that gave it a little more zing, and next time I think I'll try a bit of olive oil as well. Thanks for sharing, HealthyGFdad! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef event.

      Yum! Nice bright flavor which I really enjoyed. I steamed the broccoli for about 3 minutes. After eating a little, I added a touch of red wine vinaigrette. Thanks! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
