This was definately something different for me. I enjoyed the crisp freshness of this salad. I think it paires well with lighter fare such as tuna or salmon and some rice pilaf. My only mistake in making this recipe is that I had it with a pasta dish that did not balance well with the salad. I would definately call this salad "very good" if I had ordered it in a cafe. Thanks for sharing with us.

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
