      What a lovely green salad! I absolutely loved the cilantro dressing. The flavor was wonderful. I will be making this salad again and again. Thank you!

      We loved this salad!! DH was very hestitant about the dressing (ewh green!) but I made him try it and he loved it. I'm not sure if my onion was too strong or what but I ended up adding quite a bit more cilantro to get the flavor to come through. We really enjoyed the salad as listed as well - felt it was a great balance to the dressing. Regardless this is definitley a keeper!! Made for Veg*n Swap 32!!

      This was a nice, light & refreshing salad. I was worried the cilantro would overpower the entire salad, but it didn't. It was a nice balance. I buzzed up the onion in the dressing as I was worried my kids would freak out if they chomped into a piece of raw onion. This is a very GREEN salad. Next time I'll add a handful of carrots or some bell pepper or something to make it a little more colorful.
