  1. 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 - Read more ...
  2. 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:)
  3. 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 - Read more ...
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 - Read more ...
  9. 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 - Read more ...
  10. Loved this salad instead of using real bacon I used Smart Bacon (vegeterian) and didnt add all of the calories. Yum!
