I partially put this salad together and take the remaining ingredients (candied nuts, seeds, rice noodles and dressing) to mix in at the potluck. Works perfectly every time. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas

"This salad was awesome! I took it to a 4th of July gathering and was sad when I didn't have any left to eat the next day. I used an artisan lettuce mix and chopped it into small bite size pieces which I've discovered makes a good salad great."

"Hmmmm, I'm curious to know how this recipe can be considered 'Diabetic Friendly' when there's a Tablespoon of sugar listed in ingredients."

"My husband said this is one of his favorite salads. I have to agree. It's simple to make and full of flavor. I used Olive Oil instead of Canola. I'm not sure why it asked for Conola."
