"Very good, and simple to make. I used just 1/4 cup oil in the dressing, which was enough. I plan to make it again for our Christmas buffet."

"I recently made this for a picnic with friends. We all agreed it was a keeper. Light and fresh. easy to make. Traveled well in cooler. I used pecans instead of walnuts since that is what I had on hand."

"This is a well loved recipe among my family and friends! I sometimes use apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice in the dressing and adjust the sugar to taste. It adds a little extra zip. It also works well with Splemda."
