"Wonderfully light and refreshing. The dressing is delicious. I added a touch of crumbled bleu cheese, cut up scallions, and celery. Served it with pita bread. It's a keeper."

"This was very good. I used leftover cooked chicken which made it even faster. I used peaches instead of nectarines and thought a few blueberries would have been nice, too. We enjoyed this a lot -- a perfect light supper for summer time."
