      This salad is amazing. I like it with a little lemon juice added to the dressing. A real crowd pleaser.

        Enjoyed making this salad. I liked it with added curry on top. The left over salad was also excellent the next day.

          I made this recipe but, am trying to find a way to reduce the salt and fat content - very tasty indeed the way it is now.
