Very nice salad, this one is & I particularly liked the combo of dates & toasted sesame seeds! I didn't, however, include the liquor in the dressing, & still found the entire dish very flavorful! Certainly this is a recipe I'd like to make again, perhaps for company! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]
