I was very dubious about this but I decided to try it because it was so full of healthy ingredients. I was pleasantly surprised! The recipe turned out great and tasted delicious. What an unusual but clever combination! The dressing was probably my favourite part - so good I forgot it was non fat until I came back here to rate the recipe! I will serve this next time we have company.
I tried making this because i'm looking for healthier recipes for our family but the curry was just too much for us. It seemed to colash with the spinach. We wont be making it again.
This dressing was phenominal. I was so pleasantly surprised at how good it actually tasted. In lieu of honey, I used 4 T water and 3 pkg. Splenda. I'm sure that the recipe is even better as written, but I wanted to cut as many calories as possible. This was awesome.
Fantastic recipe, the curry dressing really pulls the flavors together. I have made it with & without the onion.
A good salad, I used all balsamic vinegar, 2 teaspoons curry powder, toasted the pecans and used more blueberries, freshly picked from our local blueberry farm, to regenerate even more of those new brain cells :).
I thought this salad was absolutely delicious! The dressing really brought all of the other ingredients together. I substituted sliced almonds for the pecans to suit my own tastes. Great recipe!
Yummy - I left out the onions though.
I served this at a dinner party and got rave reviews. I added a little olive oil and splenda to the dressing. I love the combination of berries.
