Beautiful salad! I loved the dressing for this. Lovely and simple on its own this salad would also go well with some cheese and/or green onion as well as any kind of fruit or berry. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Something just doesn't come together with this dressing for me. I could try to tweak but I can't even figure out what I liked. Read More

I made this for my ladie friends last night....they loved it! I did whisk in 2 Tablespoons of raspberry jelly to the dressing only because I was craving it not because the salad needed it. Its a great salad and a gone salad too...they ate it up! Thanks! Read More

Lick your plate good. My kids helped me make this; and so we ended up with triple the amount of parsley in place of thyme by mistake. It was still super delicious. This is the salad that I will take to potlucks so I can get compliments. I agree with other reviews that a little cheese would make it extra special. I made it and ate it before reading the reviews and didn't think it was missing anything. Now that I know about the cheese idea, I'll be sure to try it next time. Read More

This was a really great salad. I double that for a crowd and it was a crowd pleaser! I didn't have vegetable oil so I use the olive oil I had on hand. It was fine. Read More
