I prefer to use spinach or other dark leafy greens because they are tastier than iceberg, and also because of the amount of calcium they contain. I'm always looking for ways to boost my calcium intake since I can't eat dairy. —Holly Bauer, West Bend, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2012

I really like this salad. Trouble is my husband will not eat a salad with fruit in it so it is not very cost effected for me. The walnut oil is expensive and I don't know what else to use it for. But the salad is good and the dressing gets better as it sits
