Reviews for Tossed Salad with Oranges
"My family really enjoyed the different taste of this salad. Even my "will not touch salad with a 10 ft. pole" son ate some and said that it's a keeper. The oranges give it a nice fresh, crisp flavor. I did substitue turkey bacon for the bacon and it still was great. One thing I would change for next time is decreasing the amount of onion in the dressing. It was good, it just had way too much onion bite and aftertaste. I don't know if it's our pungeant onions around here or what, but next time I will be decreasing the onion by at least half."
