"My family always asks me to make this salad. I am generous with the hot pepper sauce to further accent the contrast between the sweet and spicy."

"This is the best salad and dressing ever. I usually add strawberries and blueberries with the mandarin oranges. I haven't used the water chestnuts. I add grilled chicken, too. I have made this several times for lunch and dinner. This is a big favorite in my family."

"I would eat this every day if I could!! I served it with Easter dinner and everyone enjoyed it. The next time I make it, I will add another tbsp. of raspberry vinegar as the raspberry taste wasn't quite strong enough for me. I used 1/4 tsp. of hot pepper sauce and that gave it a nice little bite! Thanks for the recipe!"
