  1. Not thrilled with the dressing
  2. I didn t use olives because of guests preferences. Sprinkled with dried cranberries and thin slices red onion. Made again for dinner guests and will make again. Very good
  3. What a light and refreshing salad! I made this as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  4. Like this recepie very much! I am doing it second time. This time instead of salad I put grated carrot. Also instead of sugar I put honey. Everyone love it!

  10. This is a wonderful salad with a pleasing combination of orange and fennel. I used a ready to use herb salad mix and it was warmly received at a dinner for eight.
