Ive made this recipe a couple of times now. The first time I made as the recipe (other than replacing teh vegetabe oil for EVOL). The second time I thought it needed a few changes ~ I added a little Feta cheese and a finely chopped onion. I also thought there was way too much dressing the first time, so the second time around I halved the dressing and found it was so much better. Great salad ~ thank you for sharing. - 12 Jan 2013


Lovely! So easy and quick to prepare. There's nothing like the smell of toasting almonds. - 08 Nov 2008
