    Busy Lindsay's Note:

    I came up with this salad one day and loved it! Now I bring this salad to dinner parties and it's always a huge hit. The two different vinaigrettes mixed together are a perfect combination of sweet, tart and tangy. For dinner parties with people I don't know well I usually leave the almonds and dressing on the side in case anyone has food allergies; only once has anyone passed on the almonds and dressing. This salad is also great topped with grilled chicken to make the salad a complete dinner.

      Made this for lunch and I really enjoyed it. I followed the recipe other then I didn't add red onions as I am not a fan. I too added pamesan cheese. Very tasty salad. Made for Fall PAC 2008.

      I made this as written except I used regular tomato wedges and made my own creamy raspberry vinaigrette and used the shredded parmesan cheese. I liked the combination of the balsamic and raspberry vinaigrettes. Thanks for a great salad combination Lindsay!!! Made for Spring 2008 Pick a Chef.
