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.
