Great salad! Fresh and tasty and loved the croutons. I halved the recipe, otherwise made just as directed and wouldn't change a thing. I had way more dressing than was needed but that's okay 'cause I can use it for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for posting your recipe!

Very tasty salad; and pretty easy to prepare. The dressing was a bit thick for my liking; more of a dip consistency but the flavor was excellent. I am not sure how to thin it without destroying the fab flavor. The dressing would work great as a vegetable dip as well! Thanks Lainey it was yummy!
