This was a really satisfying salad although my dressing came out a little thinner than I expected. Next time I will use more almonds and also reduce the sweetener (I used agave nectar instead of honey). It's interesting that The Wallaces wanted it sweeter, because I thought it was entirely too sweet. I also had a lot of leftover dressing. I agree with Maito that less oil could be used. The combination of veggies was really lovely. I enjoyed this as part of a raw food experiment, but it would also be a perfect starter when entertaining guests. Reviewed fro Veg*an Swap, June 2010
I loved the combination of veggies in this salad! The dressing was good, but next time I will lower the amount of lemon juice and increase the honey, as I prefer my dressings a little sweeter. I used 3/4 c of oil to tone down the lemon. Thanks Sharon for a great salad recipe! Made for Holiday tag.
I really liked the combination of the lemon, almond and avocado in this salad. I used a third of the honey, and only a fourth of the oil, and it worked fine. If you are trying to lower the fat, I don't think you necessarily need the full amount of the oil.
