I don't cook. My wife does. However in an effort to help my wife because we were in a time crunch I found this website and this recipe. I don't even know what dry mustard or white wine vinegar are. Be that as it may I made this salad and it was great. Very tasty flavored with the salt of the bacon and the sweet of the honey. Because of the ease of making this salad and how good it came out I've actually joined this site and am currently looking up other recipes I can make. Read More

This was very appealing to the eye but I wasn't too thrilled with the taste. I have no idea why but it just wasn't what we expected. I like the ideas of all the ingredients but I think I will have to experiment some with this so that it suits us. Thanks for the post. Read More

I thought this recipe was great! I used a teaspoon of real dijon mustard instead of dry mustard and used turkey bacon instead of the real thing (just as good). I wanted to make more of a "meal" out of this so I added grilled chicken breast as well and it really was terrific! Read More

This salad is great! Nice combination of flavors. I did not add the bacon and it was still a very good salad minus all the fat. Very easy to make. The dressing is also fabulous. Read More

Outstanding salad Barbara! For personal preference I cut the honey to 1 1/2T added 1t Dijon in addition to the dry mustard omitted celery salt and added 1/2c diced celery and toasted the almonds. WONDERFUL FLAVOR and CRUNCH! Thanks much. Read More

Loved this salad! Definitely recommend waiting until the last minute to toss with the dressing and in my opinion it is better to add less than you think you need and serve the rest at the table. I could not find white wine vinegar and used white vinegar instead. It worked. I also toasted the almonds before adding to the salad and was sure to drain the mandarins really good! Do NOT save this salad as leftovers! You won't be able to eat it make everyone have seconds! I'm sure they will want to anyway. Great recipe! Read More

The first time I made this dressing using Extra Virgin Olive Oil I found it tasted too oily. So I threw that out and started over using Canola Oil. I thought it still tasted too oily so next time I would cut the oil in half. To compensate for the oily taste I added Balsamic Vinegar and a dash of lemon juice. That seemed to do the trick at least for my taste buds. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I love this recipe. Took it to a luncheon pot luck & it got rave reviews. Don't assemble the salad until you are ready to serve though (will get soggy just bring all ingredients in seperate bags/containers). Used white vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. Also added green peppers. So good:) Read More

In a word - Fabulous! And just as the submitter states "oh so good and refreshing"! This was a great combination of flavors and gave a nice presentation. The dressing was spot on and like others I subbed dijon for the dry mustard. I opted for thin sliced red onion vs. green and topped this with grilled chicken. This was so easy to throw together and made for a tasty light summer meal. All I had to do was serve it with warm rolls and a nice glass of wine! Thanks for a great recipe - it's one I'll definitely make again. Read More
