    Could you substitute Rose Hips for some or all of the cranberries? what would the amount be, by weight or volume?

    Delicious, versatile salad! I really liked the dressing. I added feta cheese and some toasted almonds, but otherwise made it as directed. I think apples would be delicious in here too.

    This was good, though the dressing seemed just a bit sweet for our tastes. I assumed that the fat from the cooked bacon went into the dressing, so I cooked the bacon in a small skillet, removed it to drain when done, and just whisked in the rest of the dressing ingredients right into the bacon fat in the skillet to warm (off the heat). I also added a tablespoon of red wine vinegar - to cut the sweetness a bit - which worked nicely. It accompanied our Asian meal very nicely. Overall, it was a tasty (and pretty!) salad and simple to prepare. Thanks for posting it, Ed!

    Very good, and very easy to make. I thought the dressing went very well with the bacon flavor. I'm going to add crumbled goat cheese next time. Thanx!

    Yummy salad! I agree with other reviewers that the dressing was too sweet, so I added salt to taste, which was close to 2 tsp., and cracked black pepper. Made the dressing more savory for sure. I also added broccoli florets and walnuts. I will be taking this to our family Thanksgiving for sure!

    Great recipe. I used dried cranberries and bacon bits. It was very easy to make and very delicious. Ithought some nutmeats would be a good addition or fruit. The Nutrition facts are a little confusing. First glance was that the salad had 1052 calories until I figured it was the total calories for 4 servings not 1 serving. Definitely will make again.
