This is the most delicious salad I have ever tasted. My husband & daughter raved & we couldn't stop eating it!
This is the best salad recipe ever!! I have made it at least 10 times - once for a supper our community club catered for 100 people. Everyone always asks for the recipe when I bring it somewhere. I have never had fresh peaches on hand, so have always omitted them. In the winter, I make it with the cranberries and mandarin oranges as the only fruit. The first time I made it with the almonds, but the next time I didn't have any, so I substituted pecans and preferred those, so that is what I always use now. The nuts make the salad!! Thanks for the fabulous recipe!
Definitely 5 stars! I had to take some liberties with the species of fruit I used, but otherwise was straight on. I served this with sliced cooked chicken on the salad. The only thing that would make this perfect would be a bit of cheese -- I think we'll have this with feta next time! Thanks for the recipe :)
Indeed, this is a really good salad. I didn't use mango bc we didn't have any, and just one kind of lettuce, but I think I used the remainder of what was called for. I did use canned peaches and mandarin oranges and 1/2'd the dressing--it's been my experience that most of the dressing recipes on here can easily be halved and still be awesome. I wasn't sure about cooking almonds and sugar without oil, but it worked perfectly. Just watch closely once the sugar starts to carmelize. Thanks for the recipe! Very good salad. :o)
This salad is always a big hit wherever I take it. I add whatever fruits I have on hand. Blueberries make a nice addition. You can't go wrong with this recipe.
Excellent salad! I have made this twice and both times it was a hit. I used store bought glazed almonds and bottled raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Delicious!
Great salad! Peaches are not in season right now, so I skipped those and added more mango.
I kind of added some of my own stuff to this salad. It was really good. Loved the dressing. Thanks a lot.
