Delicious! I used the optional orange juice & zest in the dressing & the dried cranberries in the salad. The salad was colorful & tasted so good. I added the recipe to my short list for Thanksgiving planning. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Very enjoyable fresh and summery salad, especially loved the addition of oranges. I served this for a BBQ party and it was the perfect size for our party of 8. I have quite a bit of dressing leftover for another tasty salad tonight.
Great salad! I used all of the optional ingredients and wouldn't change a thing. It is light and refreshing and has ingredients that are available year round. A complete winner! Thanks for posting.
