"This salad has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember," Betty Tobias writes from Nashua, New Hampshire. "It's prettiest when it's served in a glass bowl, with orange and cucumber slices lining the sides. Often, I'll double the dressing recipe so I have some on hand for the next time I make it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2011

This is a very nice, light tasting salad that would go with many meals since it doesn't have an overpowering taste. It is a pretty presentation too with the orange, green and purple rather than the typical carrots and tomatoes. I made it just for two so I didn't line the bowl or anything like that. I cut the dressing in half and it made still a bit too much for us. I will be making this salad again.
