I haven't tried this yet, but since I host 3 or 4 brunches during the year for 10 to 12 church friends, I intend to put this in my brunch file. I do wonder, however why the extra sugar? I believe that the orange marmalade would make this dish sweet enough. I may give it a try and just omit the extra sweetness.

Elegant looking I wouldn't use quite as much marmalade as that made it really sweet. That was the negative for me

A simple yet elegant salad which, since it can be made ahead, saves time and fuss. Every time I'm planning a holiday brunch, my mind and taste buds turn to this recipe. Highly recommended.
