I was somewhat hesitant about this recipe since I'm not a honey-mustard fan but the flavors were great together. I did however substitute the pineapple juice from the can for the sugar to give it more of a caribbean flair and added a bit more vinegar. It turned out great. I also added the juice of one lime (made a double batch) and one minced garlic clove to the salsa which is how I usually make homemade salsa. Read More

A somewhat interesting but rather confusing dish... is it Mexican? Caribbean? The combination of pico de gallo sweet honey mustard dressing tortilla chips and pineapple were somewhat of a clash... still it tasted OK. However the honey mustard dressing was too sweet. Maybe leave out the sugar use less honey or add more vinegar and/or lime juice. It could use a bit more oil too to give it a better 'mouth feel'. The jalapenos were intense but putting the pico de gallo sparingly on top of the greens was the trick to not overpowering the dish with the chilis. Next time I'll toss the greens lightly in the dressing first as well as just drizzling it on top as the recipe calls for. Lastly I grilled fresh pineapple right along with my chicken which added tremendously to the dish. Overall this was an easy recipe to make but I recommend adjusting the dressing and leaving out the tortilla chips altogether. A better choice would be to serve plantain chips on the side not on the salad itself. Read More

EXCELLENT. I served a salad for dinner and my husband thought it was Excellent. He said it was better than a local restaurant makes. I didn't measure the salsa and salad ingredients. I just put in what looked right to me. Read More

This was fabulous! My husband didn't want to try the dressing but I put it on his salad anyway and he loved it. He didn't care for the salsa...he prefers the stuff from a jar but I thought it was very good (made with fresh cilantro from my herb garden). My kids hated it but then again they won't eat anything that doesn't come from a paper sack so "normal" children would probably enjoy it...especially if they are salad eaters. Read More

This is a real diet-buster...but so well worth it! I left out the honey in a vain attempt to cut the carbs. We felt it was sweet enough with the fruit. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic along with 1/2t of cumin to the salsa. YUMMY salad Marcy! Read More
