Very disappointing. The picture makes it look so delicious, so we were looking forward to it, but it was just OK at best. I added more fruit and celery to make it more palatable, but still no one wanted to eat very much, which left a lot of leftovers, and then no one wanted to eat the leftovers., so 3/4 of it was thrown away. It might be better with a different dressing. What a waste. Update: just before tossing, I set aside a plate to give it another try. Realizing the problem was with the dressing, I tried adding a little strawberry flavored balsamic vinegar to the salad. Much much better.
