    Delicious! Used dried cranberries but made no other changes. Will make again and try with feta  -  31 Jan 2018


    I made this and it actually made 3 large salads. However, I added roasted chicken to the top. I should have added more grated Parmesan. Overall, excellent taste!  -  22 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! I adjusted to what I had in my kitchen so the final product had beets, spinach, pistachios, dried cranberries, and goat cheese. Very close to the original so I don't feel like it should lose stars (I would have done the original if I didn't have such close ingredients at home).  -  25 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
