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.
Very healthy salad dressing which contains cilantro to detox heavy metals such as mercury from the body. I also used organic apple cider vinegar (with the mother in it) which has lots of health benefits. It complemented the salad ingredients well. I used organic baby spinach leaves as I didn't have romaine on hand (but I can imagine it would be good), English cucumber which I didn't seed, light tasting extra virgin olive oil (unrefined would make this healthier), sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients. I will try this dressing and possibly salad combination on DH insha Allah (God willing). Made for January 2013's Casual Veggie Tag (come join us everyone!)
I truly love salads like this that are pretty much all green! The dressing was great although I cut the oil down a bit. DH thought there was a bit too much cilantro -- but he is really sensitive to it, so what does he know? :) Thanks for posting! Made for Veg*N Swap 37!
Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y tag game to go with my Mexican menu...very good and quite refreshing. I did add just a pinch of sugar and used avocados and radishes to the salad. One I will definately make again. Thank you.
I absolutly loved the dressing, but the salad needed more. I added slices of red/yellow/orange bell pepper for color. I did not include the celery. The dressing was EXCELLENT. Everyone at our meal, loved it. I added more cilantro and onion to the dressing as well as balsamic vinegar. I did alot of tasting and adding more cider vinegar or olive oil. But the next day I used the dressing as a marinade for salmon, it was great and then I also used the dressing in a sandwich. Really simple, but so many uses for this delightful dressing. Thank you!!
This was a good salad but lacked flavor for us. If I make this one again, I'd use less oil and more seasoning. I love cilantro but the flavor just didn't come through for us. Thank you for posting.
Fresh, crisp, flavorful, beautiful way to eat your greens! We did not have any cucumber, but we did add an avocado.... DELICIOUS!!!! A new family favorite, thank you!
The dressing used in this salad is simply GREAT! I always make it and put it in a jar. The flavor is fabulous and gives life to a regular salad..! thankS For posting!!
