"This was a terrific salad, my son ate a big bowl without complaining. the sugared almonds and oranges helped. i just used a regular orange without the membrane, rather than using canned mandarines. the dressing was a nice complement."

"This salad was exceptional, the flavour of the cider vinegar and canola oil blended well. I would definitely make it again. I added a few tiny tomatoes."
