Reviews for Berry Tossed Salad
"Wonderful summer salad!"
"Excellent salad! I got lots of compliments from the guests at my nieces grad party!"
"This is an excellent and diiferent salad. The only change I made was to substitute buttermilk in place of the milk. Everyone loved it!"
"I can't wait to make this again with the fresh strawberries that are almost ready!! Awesome salad!!! The only change I made was using raspberry balsamic vinegar since I had that in the cupboard. Thanks for sharing."
"Excellent. Didn't find raspberry vinegar so I used raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Will be making again tonight."
"It was excellent and something different for Easter dinner."
"I've been making a very similar salad for years-try greek yogurt or 1/2 greek yogurt and 1/2 mayo. Cuts down the fat content and ups the protein as well! This can also be made using pomegranate and blueberries or mandarin oranges and almonds (switch to cider vinegar/use citrus juice and add 1 Tbs. honey instead of sugar w/ 1 tsp dry mustard)."
"Used what I had on hand to make the salad - red onions, cucumbers, pecans, raspberries, strawberries. The dressing is delicious!"
"Wonderfully good!! I did substiute some green grapes for the kiwi and omitted the onions since I am not a fan of them. I had some raspberry vingarette dressing in the house so used that instead of buying raspberry vinegar. This salad and dressing is a keeper.. :)"
"This is a terrific tasting salad. Couldn't find raspberry vinegar in the stores here so used Maille's (red) wine vinegar w/ raspberry juice. Awesome flavor. This recipe is on our "favorites" list. We did not find the dressing too sweet."
"100% Excellently delicious! Did it for the first time for guest of 20. Went over well and the dressing was nice and sweet with a slight tangy taste. Will definately add to my favourites list. Will try the Berry mandarin next time."
"I served this for Easter dinner and everyone loved it---several asked for the receipe"
"This got gobbled up at a potluck we had with family and I had several requests for the recipe. Yummy and refreshing."
"I made it twice this last week-end and everyone who tried it couldn't get enough. Delicious and different!"
"Delicious! I was out of raspberry vinegar so I used white wine vinegar and homemade strawberry freezer jam for the dressing. Yummy."
"My husband was sorry that he couldn't rate this higher than a 5! He said it was the best salad he had ever tasted. I made it as indicated except that I only added 1 tablespoon of sugar and it was plenty sweet. Very refreshing and a pretty dish too."
"When TOH asked "Would you make this recipe again?" I marked "Yes." But, if there was a box to mark that said, "Yes! I would make it again and again," I would have checked that. This was insanely delicious and refreshing. My whole family thought it was the best thing on our Easter table this year, and they asked me to make it a part of our Easter tradition in years to come. I'm sad to see that someone really didn't respond to the Creamy Raspberry Dressing, because it was SO very good. I made this salad exactly according to the recipe. One thing that might have helped the dressing was that I made it the night before Easter, so I have the feeling it allowed the dressing ingredients to meld. And, I always use a high quality raspberry jam that's not too sweet, so maybe that made a difference too. My boyfriend, who swears he doesn't like "creamy" anything, absolutely loved this salad. Oh...one change I made...I toasted the almonds. Yummy! And, if you don't like onions, try the sweet onions that are available. I use them in place of most onions in recipes, and people who don't like onions will just get the nice flavor without the zippiness that some onions have. A bonus was, the little bit of leftovers that we had were absolutely delicious the next day! This is perfection in a salad bowl."
"This is an absolutely amazing salad! It's the dressing that makes it. We made it for Easter and my mom and I fell in love with it and one of us has one of these salads everyday. We also reduced the sugar by half since my mom is on the Atkins diet and has to watch her carbs. It was still amazing! I couldn't more highly recommend this!"
"Tasty spring salad. Excess poppy seeds in dressing."
"The salad ingredients were good but the dressing was just terrible. Way too heavy and too sweet. Will not even consider making this again!"
"Great recipe and so simple to make."
"Awesome! This dressing could be used as a fruit dip. It would make a great gift for friends also!"
"I made this using cranberries instead of the kiwi and strawberries, and honey roasted cashews in place of the almonds."
"I used about half the mayonnaise and cut out the onions because they didn't seem to go with the salad, other than that this was amazing - a huge hit."
