A healthy and fresh tasting salad that is very different from our usual salads. I ended up making a little extra of the dressing, (I would recommend doubling it), but otherwise followed the re...

This salad is so good. I wasn't sure that all of the flavors would go together, especially the pineapple. But it works. And the dressing is wonderful!

I really like this salad. I marinaded my chicken using the marinade from the "Luau Chicken Sandwiches" recipe on this site. The flavors taste great together. Thanks for the recipe.

This is a great recipe! Even my veggie hating husband had seconds! The only changes I made were to leave the avocado on the side and up the amount of garlic in the dressing. Thanks for sharing...

Served this salad as a part of a healthy lunch for a friend's birthday. Everyone enjoyed it and it is colorful on the plate. Will make again.
