"Most delicious salad I have made in a while. A perfect balance between the dressing, greens and fruit. The goat cheese and walnuts on top were perfect and reminded me of the fresh salads one would receive in an upscale restaurant. All of my dinner guests complimented this recipe. Thank you for sharing!"

"Try liquid or powdered Stevia in the dressing as a substitute for honey. Keep in mind that it is 300x as sweet as sugar, so only a tiny amount is needed. Stevia is a natural, herbal sweetener that has all kinds of uses."

"tastydog1, An easy way to eliminate honey from the diet is to substitute it with the sugar-free varieties of pure maple syrup, light or dark corn syrup or molasses.

"Is there something else I could substitute for the honey. I'm diabetic and shouldn't have honey. The only thing I can think of off hand is maybe a little Splenda."
