"Recipes are just a guide and you make them to your own taste. Excellent as it stands. Tried it as is but then cut the oil. Thank you Emily. This is a winner. Top the salad with thin slices of grilled smoked duck breast and you have a main course to die for"

"We liked this recipe but the dressing has way too much canola oil for our tastes. I couldn't even taste the red wine vinegar and it has a strong flavor. This salad is very healthy and will try it again with less oil!"
