    This is a lot more delicious than I imagined it would be. I used clementine sections instead of orange, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, a good pimento stuffed green olive but would recommend to try with black, no sunflower seeds but for a little of the flavour I added a drizzle of unrefined sunflower oil, plus the rest of the ingredients. I would like to make this again with black olives. Made for January's Tag Game ~ Nueces ~ Nuts in the Spain & Portugal forum.

    I was looking for a recipe from Spain for my book club dinner, and while a bit skeptical, gave this a try. It was a huge hit! I followed the suggestions and served it on a bed of fresh spinach to add color. There was some leftover, and it was still good the next night. My hubby has asked that we add this to our regulars file. Thank you for a recipe we will enjoy again and again!

    Beautiful and colorful salad with lots of flavor! Everyone at the table enjoyed it! I made a few changes according to what I had on hand, etc. First, replaced raspberry vinegar with orange muscat champagne vinegar and dates for golden raisins.The mixture was served over a bed of baby spinach leaves and hearts of romaine. I didn't bother to soak the dried fruit either. Yesterday I found heirloom oranges from California and they were a bright sunburst of flavor in this salad. A fruity Spanish olive oil worked best, too. Thanks for posting. Reviewed for Vegetarian Swap #19-2010.
