    Love it!! I added salt and pepper!!  -  31 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Sorry, I had high hopes for this. The dressing was what didn't work for us (and what I thought would be the best part), but we liked all the components. It was simple to prepare and healthy, just not to our tastes.  -  03 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I absolutely loved this! The only thing I did differently was to add salt and pepper. You could probably add olive oil to the dressing to make it more of a "traditional" dressing. Thanks for sharing!  -  03 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
