    Delicious and well-balanced! I didn't add the croutons or the zucchini. I substituted pecans for walnuts and added feta cheese. The dressing, I didn't change at all and it was a wonderful complement to the salad itself - not too sweet, not too acidic. Everyone at dinner (friends and family) loved it. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    We really liked this!! I, too, used cucumbers instead of zucchini as is our preference. We also put shredded mozzarella cheese on it.......superb!

    The dressing for this salad is THE best I've ever had!! It's light and tangy and sweet--but not to sweet. A very delightful dressing!

    Loved this salad. I made one change; I don't like raw zucchini so I used cucumber instead. Great dressing.
