We really enjoyed the tangy lime juice dressing. Since I had some baby spinach left from another recipe, I used that for the salad greens.

I thought that this would be an interesting tasting salad, but I did not care for it at all. The lime juice flavor was too overwhelming and it was just missing something to give it another note of flavor. I have similar salad recipes that I prefer, so I will not be making this one again.
