"This is a very refreshing, light salad. I generally like a salad with everything but the kitchen sink in it, but this paired well with a heavy main course. I doubled the dressing ingredients for the amount of lettuce and for me, it was just right."

"Very light and refreshing. I left out the lime peel because I didn't have any limes, just lime juice."
