Great different taste.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 11, 2013

This was easy and very different! Loved the flavor combinations. The only change I would make is to double the dressing and use half to drizzle over the greens. The dressing had a great taste but it didn't go very far, so the greens were a bit dry.
