"Pretty salad. Although, I love pine nuts, they don't always fit my budget. I have subbed pecans."

"I.m not a big curry fan, but I loved serving this over the holidays. Now I'd be happy to make it in any season."

"This salad was so delicoius. I also used slivered almonds rather than the pine nuts simply because that was what was on hand."

"We often receive arugula in our CSA, but my family doesn't like it. I followed Trisha's suggestion & used arugula instead of spinach & everyone liked it. Slivered almonds were a perfect substitute for expensive pine nuts. Thanks for the delicious recipe!"
