This was pretty tasty, a little bland but still very good. I used agave nectar instead of sugar (it's a staple in my house) and added the mustard powder. We added some radishes and sliced almonds as well. Thanks for sharing!

Nice, simple fresh salad. I used Splenda instead of sugar and added the mustard powder to the dressing. I used sesame sticks as a topping.
