My spinach-hating kids loved this! I cut the recipe in half except for the nuts and fruit. I used pine nuts instead of walnuts since that's what I had lying around and I also added a handful of raisins. After poking around in it dubiously torn between foods they adore and a food they despise each child finally took a bite. The surprised looks on their faces were priceless. This will be a good one to bring to pot lucks or family holiday gatherings (keep the dressing on the side and toss the salad once you get there though). Read More

Kids will probably love it because it's sweet. It was a little too sweet but I added crumbled bleu cheese to it and the result was a wonderful salad. When I made the dressing it didn't seem quite right. A little too oily so I ended up adding more jam and more vinegar until it tasted good. Read More

Great salad. It's definitely worth the effort to make the dressing. Like others I added blue cheese a nice touch. Read More

Good recipe. I used a bottled raspberry vinegarette. Definiately toast the walnuts. Looked pretty. Next time I will probably add some blue cheese crumbles. Read More

A delicious blend of raspberries and strawberries. I used fresh frozen raspberries to make the raspberry vinigar and tossed a few into the salad. Read More

The salad dressing was out of this world (I did add a little bit of salt and pepper). The only change I made to the salad was to use raspberries instead of strawberries (too expensive). This complimented my Christmas meal perfectly. Read More

Excellent recipe. I didn't add the kiwis because I couldn't find them at 3 stores(maybe out of season?). I added crumbled feta cheese & toasted pine nuts in place of the walnuts & everyone thought it was great. Super easy too. Read More
