I had made this quite a while ago and thought I had given a review, but it is not showing so here goes again. This was a wonderful dish and quite a unique blend of flavors. It went together real quickly and I absolutely loved it, especially the orange mixture. It reminded me of an orange salad my family made when I was a child. Thanks once again, Barb for another super recipe.
