"Found this recipe in Quick Cooking. Recipes states: "The light dressing Craig Miller serves over his crunchy combination of colorful salad fixings contains just a hint of sweetness. I like to make the dressing ahead to let the flavors blend, remarks the Torrance, California cook." Time doesn't include time for chilling dressing."

"This is a great salad. I used cucumbers instead of zucchini. The dressing is yummy with all these veggies. I forgot to add the croutons. But anyway DH doesn't care for croutons. I omitted the almonds and sesame seeds. Thanks Diner :) Made for Holiday tag game"
"This salad has lots of nice veggies, but still it is easy to throw together. The dressing is simple but tasty. Made for ZWT 2011."
"Nice side salad. I made it with as directed except that I forgot the croutons until I had eaten half of the salad, lol. Loved the dressing - nice and light. Thanks diner for a nice salad. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers."
"This is very good. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, organic apple cider vinegar, white sugar, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, romaine & iceberg lettuce, green zucchini, no croutons as we are gluten/yeast free, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for ZWT7 Italy, for my team Food.Commandos"
"I thought this would be a great salad, but it was even better than expected! The dressing is light and has a very pleasant taste. My favorite part of the salad was the toasted almonds (I used slivered) and the seasoned croutons (I crushed mine). Thank you for a winner of a salad recipe!"
"This is a great little salad! I used cucumber instead of zucchini and really loved the dressing. Great combination of crunchy veggies, croutons, nuts and seeds - we enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"This is a very good salad! Made as directed, but forgot the almonds; was still very tasty!! I really likes the dressing, I love cider vinegar and this had just the right amount of tart and sweet. Made with a zucchini and cut back a little on the green onion. Will make again!! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag January 2010."
"I enjoyed this salad. The veggies were nicely complemented by the slightly sweet of the dressing. I plan to try it with Splenda in the future."
"I enjoyed this. I made this as directed except I used Splenda instead of sugar. I also used cucumbers instead of zucchini. I didn't have almonds so I just doubled the sesame seeds. Made for ZWT5."
"When I was preparing this salad I was afraid that the dressing would be too sweet for my taste. Happily it had just the right amount of sweetness. I made this salad as written using cucumbers in place of the zucchini. Made for ZWT5."
"Crispy, flavoursome and easy to make: what more could one ask for from a salad. :) Loved the blend of flavours and textures and the dressing. My only change was to halve the sugar (personal taste preference). We enjoyed this with mikekey's Recipe #260352 some days ago. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe. It's certainly one I'll be making again. Made for Gimme 5."
"A delicious, nutritous salad with a light sweet tart dressing, just the way I like it! I forgot the almonds! But won't next time. Thanks diner for a lovely salad!"
"Well as crispy as suggested, delicious as imagined, and lovely dressing to bring all the wonderful tastes out. The almond, the sesame seeds, the cucumber (instead of zucchini) all lead the dinner to a delicious pinnacle. I forgot the croutons, but didn't even notice as this was so good and crunchy, they were even missed. I didn't change anything. It is perfect the way it is! Made for diner's Football win, January 2009"
"Very good sweet and sour dressing. I added a teaspoon of dried herbs and allowed to sit for an hour while I prepared dinner."
"Scaled back to one serve and have just enjoyed with a 1/4 of cold roast chicken for lunch. I used the cucumber option and added some halved cherry and baby grape tomatoes for a bit a extra colour and because I love the taste of them. Thank you diner 524 for a quick, easy and tasty salad, made for Every Day is a Holiday."
