I find that the salad was really good and crunchy. I really enjoyed the salad part, but found that the dressing part, although nice and a bit creamy, which is the kind of dressing I like, could have used a bit more flavour.

This was fabulous! I did double the dressing as it didn't seem like enough to coat. We loved the combo of flavors & textures. Well done. Made for RSC #14. Good luck & thank you for posting!

Very nice use of contest ingredients resulting in a crunchy tasty sald The cranberries & walnuts are a nice touch of color & flavor I used a Lemon (also known as an apple) cucumber they are very mild in the flavor. I may like to add some sweet onion to the salad. Good luck in the contest!

The recipe was made to serve with salmon burgers. The recipe was reduced considerably and I found that due to the way the ingredients list was written, reducing it presented some problems. It would have been helpful to have listed the ingredients with approximate cup or ounces. Also, I found the salad was a little to tart for my taste and ended up adding a small amount of sugar to the leftovers. If I were to make this again I would reduce the a mount of lemon juice and maybe still add in a pinch of sugar. A good use of the contest ingredients. Good luck in RSC #14.

I thought this was the best use of jicama in the contest. It matched well with the other flavors and provided a welcome crunch. I liked the use of the dried cranberries & walnuts. They added a sweet note & color to the frilly cabbage. The dressing tastes "light" and clean. I did think it needs additional seasoning to complement the well placed veggies. It seemed to be missing that punch to take the salad higher. I ended up adding cracked black pepper at the table. I had made a half recipe, but still had leftovers. This salad tasted even better the second day & had held it's crispness surprisingly well. Good luck in the contest!
