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

"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."

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