I have seven children - all with different likes and dislikes. Half are vegetarian. Some more vegetarian than others :) But all of them love this salad and ask for it all the time. The presentation is beautiful and tastes so good! I teach my children, presentation is everything in cooking. At least I try, doesn't always come out the way I like. Anyhoo, this is a lovely, fresh, healthy salad. Did I say it is pretty too? ;)
