    Light, fresh and delicious! I did eyeball the oil and lemon juice (to taste) and added just a bit of salt, but those were my only changes. I was skeptical of this one, but it's really, really good! I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing.  -  23 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very good salad - even the kids liked it! I did not make the dressing, but instead, used Lemon Chia bottled dressing. Could really substitute any dressing. I have so many bottled dressings already, I didn't need to make a separate dressing for this salad. Healthy and yummy! We add the dressing to our individual salad bowls so that leftovers don't get soggy.  -  17 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
