Great salad! I cut back on the number of servings and added a bit of garlic and dijon mustard to the dressing. I added sliced some thin sliced red onion and some leftover citrus grilled chicken. This was very light and perfect for a quick lunch!
Took this to a potluck and had one person who really liked it. Everyone else felt it was just okay, including me.
This was a great basic recipe that is so refreshing with any meal or as a meal itself. WARNING: Dressing needs some help. I made my own little changes to the dressing. I used raspberry vinegar instead of red wine. I also added 2 tablespoons of orange marmalade, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch to thicken and sweeten it up a bit. YUM YUM YUM!! My whole family now begs me to make this salad. (The dressing is great on a garden salad topped with a citrus chicken breast!!)
Wonderful fresh salad for summer!! Loved the dressing. I used baby spinach instead of romaine, it was still wonderful!
This salad was easy to make, and tasted ok. I too added orange zest to it, I also added some chopped mint leaves, which helped. The dressing was a bit lackluster, it needs something to help it cling a bit more, next time, I will up the oil and reduce the OJ. .
I served this salad for the first time on New Years Eve. We had a Progressive dinner party with three other couples. We did the soup and salad course. I served this with homemade Cream Of Mushroom Soup. They were very good together.
I loved this salad! The flavor of the dressing was very subtle, but perfectly suited for the salad. It's a nice break from regular salad. My husband and son didn't like it so much -- but I think they like their standard-tasting salad. This is for the more adventurous and someone who is looking for a change. I was pleasantly surprised about how the flavors went together. Thanks for the recipe!
this was a good salad with a light, refreshing flavor. very easy to put together. i used rasberry vinegar bc i had it on hand and read some of the reviews saying the dressing was a bit bland...it made for a nice flavor. i also diced some red onion very fine and added that to the dressing. also, i toasted the slivered almonds before adding to the salad. overall was delicious. i will make this again.
