Very good, simple recipe. I love the dressing as it is light yet flavorful. I will be making this frequently!
What a simple, easy to make and delicious salad! I wanted a nice salad with dinner and was tired of the same-ole-salad. I remembered saving yours in my cookbook to make someday. I was surprised that everything in the salad, I had, despite my need to grocery shop soon! I was not sure about such a simple dressing, but trusted the recipe and it works! Very delicious. I might add to others....do NOT skip on making the sugared almonds to put on this. They were fabulous as a crunchy, sweet addition! A+ to you Grandma!! :-)
