      Love all the ingredients in this and was impatient to make it. SO yummy: surpassed even my very high expectations. What a fabulous blend of flavours! :) On this occasion, I made it with feta and a mix of fresh stawberries and raspberries and slivered almonds, and I look forward to making it again with some of the other suggested options. We enjoyed this tonight with Mushroom Stroganoff With Mustard and Chive Mash, and I anticipate enjoyed it again for tomorrow's take-to-work lunch with some pasta salad. Thank you for sharing another super recipe, Linda. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

      I loved everything that was in this salad and it was such a nice change from the same ole same ole! The dressing is excellent and really compliments all the flavors in the salad! I plan to make this again for company coming over the weekend.

      My outlook on salad will never be the same after trying this combination! It was super dooper good, and right up there on top with my favorite!!! It was crunchy, flavorful, fruity and sweet. I used strawberries and blueberries and with the veggies and cheese every mouthful was a flavor sensation to my tastebuds! We will have this often!
