Great tasting recipe. The variety of ingredients make this a very colorful dish for a festive occassion. I subsituted cilantro for the parsley giving it a Tex-Mex flavour. The spices are suprisingly subtle, a great combination while not overpowering the natural flavor of the vegetables. I topped my salad off with fresh cracked pepper just before serving. Definately will make this dish again. Recommended!
For some reason this was not as flavorful as I expected. I used all of the spices except the chervil and even added a red onion and a 1/4 of red wine vinegar after tasting it the first time.
I made this today and it's excellent. I didn't have the spices you called for except cumin. I added cubed ham to make it the main dish and it got rave reviews. I used the cuissanart and the chopping was a breeze. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely make this salad again.
I made this yesterday for a garden club meeting and although its a beautiful salad it was rather bland tasting and I even doubled the dressing. Maybe it would be better with an Italian dressing or with garlic chives instead of regular chives.
