MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2010

This is absolutely delicious. In order to cut calories, we deleted the cheese and sprinkled some walnuts on individual salads at the table. Also, instead of using marinade as dressing, we made the Creamy Strawberry Salad Dressing found on this site. It is the perfect complement to this salad and only 19 calories per tablespoon. Outstanding!
