"Elegant looking I wouldn't use quite as much marmalade as that made it really sweet. That was the negative for me"

"A simple yet elegant salad which, since it can be made ahead, saves time and fuss. Every time I'm planning a holiday brunch, my mind and taste buds turn to this recipe. Highly recommended."
