"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!"

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