Very yummy salad - lots of flavour and actually quite filling when a bit of grilled chicken is added on top.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2010

I was looking for a salad with some unusual ingredients and this recipe caught my attention. It was a hit. I made it for a company of 10 people and everybody loved it! I forgot to add green onions but the salad was outstanding without them. Will make it again.
