MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2014

"Very eye-catching salad. I fried the turkey pieces a little longer than the recipe calls for, since it's hard to tell if they're done with the coating on. Also I didn't use the blueberries as I was afraid of the color they would turn the salad. The colors are so appetizing, I didn't want to ruin it."
