"I would definitely make this again, but I used a medium sized onion and would probably cut back even a little more. The amount of onion called for seemed to take away from the oranges."

"Very fresh salad that kind of sparkles with flavor. I served it with pork loin but I'm sure it would be good with chicken too."
