    We enjoyed this light and refreshing salad & dressing Kizzikate. What a wonderful way to use the fresh tarragon in my garden. The flavour of the dressing was lovely, semi sweet and slightly tart with a hint of licorice. I used a small vidalia onion and was very pleased with its addition to the salad, I really enjoyed the way it complimented the fresh mandarin oranges and english cucumbers that I used. Thanks so much for sharing.

    This was a very nice surprise! Never thought of mixing cucumbers with mandarin! Only change I made was not to add any onion. Thanks kizzikate!

    I really liked this salad and most certainly make it again. The combination of oranges and cucumbers was bright light and summery. Taking heed from Math Mom I reduced the onion to 1/2 of a large vidalia. The proportions seemed right on. What perplexed me a bit was the dressing. Still can decide if it was too tart or just needed something else. Thinking reducing the vinegar to 1/4 cup and doubling the tarragon will work and plan to try it that way soon.

    Prepared it for a 4th of July block party, and it was not very popular. I guess the people at the party weren't big on onions. I thought it was nice for a change, but not something I'm likely to make again. It is a cool, refreshing, light salad.
