    I can't give a complete review of this recipe because I only used this recipe as a base to use ingredients that I had on hand. I mixed together iceberg lettuce, spinach, cubed cooked chicken, sliced celery, yellow pepper and onion, dried cranberries and toasted pecans. I tossed it all with the citrus dressing (only changed to use raspberry vinegar instead of cider). It was very good and refreshing, though it seemed to be missing something...maybe some sort of crumbled cheese. Also I only used the amounts of the ingredients listed for the dressing and tossed it with at least double the amount of lettuce and chicken called for and that was plenty of dressing.
