    This was okay, but neither my husband nor I found it to be great.

    Not my favorite recipe, but it made for an interesting change from most salads.

    Great salad just like the one I recently tried in a restaurant. I added walnuts and used a can of mandrin oranges. This is one I'll make on a regular basis.

    I made this salad and I loved it. It has such a refreshing taste and it is something you can feel good about eating. I will certainly make it again.

    This salad is light, delicious, and a wonderful boost of vitamins A and C. My family loves it and it's a keeper, for sure.
