    1. Hi. Good question. Unfortunately at this time I don’t offer that information on my recipes.

  1. Oh my gosh, so much YUM!! And talk about flavor!! This recipe was so simple and inexpensive to create. Everyone really enjoyed it and the left overs keep nicely! No wilty veggies. The dressing is light and flavorful, just the way I like it! I will make this again and again!!

    1. So glad you love it as much as we do! And no wilty veggies make it great for summer or meal prepping!

    1. Thanks Danielle! So glad you loved it as much as we do! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. I’ve made this recipe 3 times now. It is delicious! I’ve used the dressing in other recipes as well. Thank you!

    1. Yay! So glad you love it! The dressing is great– love you use it in other recipes!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Karen! I made it for a BBQ and everyone loved it – and I was thrilled to have a little bit left over for lunch the next day! I look forward to trying your other recipes very soon! 🙂

  4. I made this for a simple meal with friends and everyone loved it. I love the crunchy fresh flavors of the salad. I had the leftovers for lunch 2 days later and added baby spinach for more crunch and freshness. Still delicious!

  5. I made this salad as a side for Thanksgiving, and it was by far one of the biggest hits of the night! Everyone loved the fresh flavor, and the dressing!! During Thanksgiving dinner a lot of times my family is feeling bloated and sick at the end of the night. But since I’ve had to go gluten free, we’ve found that we don’t feel bad after making dishes like this and adding them to our menu! Several people went back for seconds and thirds of this salad. I was beyond happy with it. It will be a staple side dish from now on!
