      Beautiful, healthy, easy salad! I made this for the week's lunches today, keeping the dressing separate - I'll toss two portions together each morning - simple! I added both broccoli and cauliflower, doubling the other veggies. The dressing is so delicious! Thanks for posting, Smelly! Made for my adopted chef, in Veggie Swap 20.

      AWESOME. I was looking at the veggies, then tasted the dressing and thought, "Hmmmm, I don't know. Maybe it needs something else." NOPE!!!! It is good at first bite without any marinating at all. In the dressing I used fresh basil and oregano (just doubled the amts). For the salad I used the cauliflower option which I HIGHLY recommend. Used red, orange and yellow bell peppers for color. Threw in some celery (hey, why not). Used white beans which were great. Then subbed arugula for the spinach. AWESOME. UPDATE: this time I threw in some asparagus that I cooked in the microwave for 1 minute and subbed out the spinach for shredded kale. I also used tarragon vinegar and lime instead of lemon...and subbed some Sunny Paris seasoning for the herbs. Excellent after about 15 minutes of marinating! Love this stuff! I need to take this to the next potluck I go to as I know it would be well received!

      Delicious! The dressing to veggie ratio was perfect. I forgot to add the almonds, but I'll be making this again soon and can't wait to see what they add. Thanks for sharing the keeper!
