Top Review by French Tart

Fabulous cg! I loved the combo of flavours and it felt healthy to eat too, all of those pinenuts and cranberries! The dressing was the star of the show for me, and I had to use dried basil as mine has withered in the frost - SORRY,but it is home dried and still bright green!! In place of spinach leaves I used Roquette/Rocket/Arugula leaves and that really worked well I thought. Made for the Photo Swap in the Photo's forum and very much enjoyed thanks. FT:-) Edited to add, I also used a few other salad leaves to bulk it out and in place of fresh basil leaves, scattered a few roquette leaves on top!
