I made no changes to the recipe and wouldn't next time. This review doesn't require a whole lot of words. It's just a beautiful and different salad. I loved it. Hubs loved it. Simple as that.

I enjoy each of the main ingredients, but I did not like this salad. It ended up a bit oily and just didn't have a great flavor for me. I thought maybe the flavor would get better if I let it marinade overnight, but it didn't. I just had to throw it away; no one was going to eat it - I hate throwing food away. Sorry, this just isn't a keeper for my household.

I am giving this a 5 with a different dressing, I don't know if I am just bad at making dressing or I just didn't care for this one. That being said, I used a balsamic vinegarette, and it was FABULOUS! Hearts of palm, first time tried, LOVE THEM! Great Job!

Unique quick salad...it was a hit at a family outing but may be too exotic for small children.

Great recipe. Added sliced water chestnuts (sliced in half) and added Italian blend - 4-cheese to the recipe. Make sure to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil and let the mix marinade for at least 1/2 hr. in the refrigerator before eating. Great side dish for steak or chicken.
