The best part of this recipe is the dressing. The salad ingredients can be modified to suit one's taste. I was looking for an arugula salad recipe that tasted like a salad I had at a local res...

This salad is very good (addictive, in fact) with the following changes (some to decrease the amount of sugar): use walnut oil in place of one of the oils, use mandarin oranges instead of navel ...

i had this at a dinner party and all the guest insisted on leaving with the recipe. It was more of a hit than the main course
