MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2011

"Since I did not have the raisins, broccoli, mushrooms, red onion, and almonds on hand, I added some fresh cherry tomatoes. This made the recipe even quicker to make. The dressing is wonderful. I will add the ingredients to my shopping list and make this salad again. My husband and my 16-year-old son liked it, too. It's a keeper!"
