  1. Tasty! The tarragon is an unusual taste in a salad, so it takes some getting used to. I'll definitely try this again and if it grows on me, I'll be back to give it more stars.
  2. YUM-Oh - the fresh herbs made this dish and the beautiful red and green colors made a great presentation at the Christmas table - Thanks !
  3. Made exactly as posted except I didn't have fresh tarragon so substituted with 1/2 teaspoon dried. It was interesting and colourful and the dressing was good but the tarragon did not blend with the other flavours. Perhaps due to the dried herb? HOWEVER, because I love tarragon with chicken, I mixed the leftover salad with leftover chicken pasta (posted as "Quick Fix Chicken 'n Chutney Pasta")and WOW the result was astoundingly good. Thank you L4C, the credit for this belongs to you.
  4. I made this again last night for a function I catered today. It was a bright and colourful addition to the buffet, tasted fantastic and was extremely popular. It was made 12 hours ahead and stood up well to that. I made about 7 times your recipe.
  5. Nice-change-of-pace from the lettuce/tomato tossed salad but I think an oi/vinegar type of dressing may go better with the vegetables in this salad.


Since April 2008, I have been a vegetarian. I dont eat creatures...that's the easiest way to put it! :D I still eat a small amount of dairy, but not very much. I have been missing around here for a while, and hope to poke my head in a bit more often from now on... I hope you enjoy my recipes...
