    Yum, love this salad! I added lime juice instead of lemon as that's what I had on hand, and it was delish! I can see orange juice working in this wonderfully too. The hint of cumin gives it that warmth and depth of flavour. It went great as a side with herb roasted chicken and potatoes and of course it's a beautiful salad to look at! I will make this again for sure.  -  16 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy salad with ingredients i have. Cumin was very mild but flavorwise not stupendous. I would make it again though  -  07 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
