MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2011

"Wow! This is a keeper. I cut the sugar in half and used red wine vinegar (it was on hand). Toasted almonds would be a great addition. This was quick and easy. It gives a great presentation and is delicious."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2010

"The mention of toasted almonds in the recipe description was an error, although they would be an excellent addition to this recipe. They can be purchased already sliced and toasted in the produce section of most stores.

We apologize for any confusion.

"Excellent. Since the almonds alluded to in the intro weren't included in the ingredients i simply ignored them. I added 1 tbsp rendered bacon fat to the vinaigrette then heated it and garnished the salad with semi crisp bacon bits (4 rashers worth). Sweet, salty, smoky. who could ask for anything more"

"The toasted almonds are not mentioned in the recipe, only next to the picture. Would be nice to add 'how to toast almonds'. Guess they are added with the bananas and strawberries!"
