About this recipe: This salad is a delightful addition to your office lunch rotation. It's also a very nice side dish for pork chops or gammon.
I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used about 1 T of fresh chopped cilantro. I also used olive oil. Other than those two substitutions, I followed the recipe. My husband and I thought the salad was delicious. It is good with or without the sesame seeds. I tasted the salad before I added them, and I think I liked it better. My husband likes it with them--it adds an Asian zing--so you can't go wrong either way. I will be making this salad often. - 27 Sep 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
When eating pepper and garlic in an apple salad, this takes some getting used to! I liked this because it was not sweet, and the tang of the lemon and vinegar came out! I didn't have parsley, so used a bit of green pepper for an accent color. When pumpkins are in season, this will be wonderful to replace the carrots with pumpkin! This is a great recipe! Thanks! - 29 Jun 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy & tangy. A great side dish. The only change that I made was that I did not have any safflower oil handy; used olive oil instead. - 22 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
