I received this recipe from a friend, and my guests always rave about it. It's so easy to prepare! I didn't think it could be improved upon, but almonds add a nice crunch. Fresh and colorful, it also travels well in warm weather. &dmash;Suzanne Sager, Dallas, Texas

MY REVIEW

Really liked this salad and so impressed with the idea of removing the seeds from the cucumbers - now my husband enjoys cucumbers in salads too!

Even my dh loved this salad, which is a little unusual for him to like a salad with nuts and fruit. We had this with grilled lamb steaks and it was fantastic.

I made this for my Bunco night last Wednesday. It was a HUGE hit! Everyone went back for seconds. I served it with Honey-Poppyseed dressing.
