Reviews for Cranberry Mandarin Salad with Walnut Vinaigrette
"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"
