I like this salad because the dressing is easy to make and it provides a tangy blend of sweet and sour. There's always enough dressing left over for other meals, too. Colorful and refreshing, this green salad is a delightful addition to any menu!

"I generally don't like to write negative reviews, but this recipe didn't work out for me at all, esp the dressing. The honey wouldn't mix with the other ingredients no matter how hard I shook it and the color was not appetizing - it certainly wasn't the white color in the photograph. Also the photo shows tomatoes, which aren't mentioned in the recipe, although it certainly isn't hard to add them. I'm afraid I won't try this one again."
