Beautiful salad! I loved the dressing for this. Lovely and simple on its own, this salad would also go well with some cheese and/or green onion, as well as any kind of fruit or berry. Thanks for the recipe!

Something just doesn't come together with this dressing for me. I could try to tweak, but I can't even figure out what I liked.

I made this for my ladie friends last night....they loved it! I did whisk in 2 Tablespoons of raspberry jelly to the dressing only because I was craving it, not because the salad needed it. Its a great salad and a gone salad too...they ate it up! Thanks!

Adore this vinaigrette! Light and lemony (I opted for lemon thyme as well) with a hint, a mere kiss if you will, of zing from the red pepper flakes. With juicy strawberries (although almost any fresh fruit will do) and crunchy almonds, this salad is sure to make mouths happy :)

Lick your plate good. My kids helped me make this; and so we ended up with triple the amount of parsley in place of thyme by mistake. It was still super delicious. This is the salad that I will take to potlucks so I can get compliments. I agree with other reviews that a little cheese would make it extra special. I made it and ate it before reading the reviews and didn't think it was missing anything. Now that I know about the cheese idea, I'll be sure to try it next time.
