excellent salad! Just omit the salt from the dressing for a salt free dressing. I will be making this for St. Paddy's day!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2011

A very yummy salad. I prefer pecans over pistachios and skip the feta, as my family eats dairy-free. I usually eat this salad without the dressing, but I made it when I want to dress it up for guests. You can also serve it with Balsamic Vinaigrette if you don't have time to make the dressing.

MY REVIEW

I would not make it at all because of the amount of sodium in it.
