"Made this for the Herb & Spice of the Month -- Tarragon. Heaven! I cut the recipe in half and used a little less olive oil but followed the rest of the recipe. Loved the toasted pine nuts in the salad! Served with recipe#362347#362347. Thank you for another GREAT recipe!"
"Very tasty! I cut this to two servings. I think I would cut back on the oil in the dressing and increase the acid, but maybe if I'd remembered to get the mandarin oranges that would make up the difference (I had to skip them since I forgot to buy them). Otherwise, I thought this was a very nice blend of flavors! I used portobello instead of white mushroom. Thanks for sharing!"
"yummm! I ended up making substituting plums for oranges...and fennel seeds for tarragon. I admit I wasn't sure how this salad would taste but was pleasantly surprised. Left me feeling good :)"
"Excellent. I cut back the olive oil to 1/3 cup (will try less next time). I served the leftovers with slices of cooked pork -- great combination."
"Delicious! I did leave out the oranges. I loved the dressing and will make it again. I served with brown rice and veggies and the salad dressing went great with the rice too! Thanks Rita! Made for Vegetarian Swap!"
"My father (a steak and potato guy) said the salad was great, and not only went back for seconds. He had 3rds, forgoing an extra meat portion. The balance of flavors and textures in this salad is phenomenal. I used rice wine vinegar instead of lime juice for a little lighter flavor. It was amazing too look at, and even better to taste!"
"Excellent salad! Made this for my mother's birthday and we enjoyed it very much. The light citrus vinaigreete nicely compliments the other ingredients, and the combination of colors and textures is really quite pretty. Will make this again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"I halved the recipe, and it made two main dish size servings. I paired it with some parmesan ciabatta, and it was nicely filling as a meal. We loved the combination of the citrus dressing with the cranberries and pine nuts. This is a real keeper for a quick evening meal. Thanks Rita!"
"Absolutely wonderful salad! The flavors in this salad really complement each other. The dressing is fabulous and the toasted pine nuts are a great touch! This is a visually stunning salad and could be served at a very nice dinner party. Thanks Rita!"
