Very light and refreshing summer salad. I served it on home grown baby greens. I did add grated fresh ginger to the dressing which I put all the ingredients in my vita mix and blended them smooth. Sorry I wish the picture would give this salad a clearer view. I`m still learning how to use the camera.It really dosen`t do it justice.
