"This is a delicious salad. I halved the salad for just the two of us using one apple, one pear, and one clump of grapes. I halved the dressing and it was perfect. This salad is a real winner. I added a little fresh lime zest and it tasted so good. We will have this again and again. Here is a link to my review and photo."

"Very Good. I doubled the recipe but instead of using all lime juice I used 1/2 lime and 1/2 orange pineapple. It was excellent."
