MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2013

The prep work for this salad is very easy. The dressing is quite sweet, but compliments the salad perfectly. Made this as a side for the TOH Parmesan Fish recipe. Will make again.

This salad has a great combination of flavors. When I made it I only had red onion and i added a tablespoon of orange juice to the dressing.
