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

"Made this for my tennis team pot luck luncheon. Served it with a bottled raspberry vinaigrette dressing. It was a hit. Prepared it around 7:00am and kept it on ice in a small cooler while we played. When lunch was served more than five hours later, it was still fresh and simply beautiful. Got many compliments on how it looked and how it tasted."

"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."
