    That's a lot of calories for a salad. Even with the good amount of protein I think I'd be starving soon after. I think a half serving would make a nice side salad to accompany a meal. - 5/21/14

  • I added more salad greens and served two. My hubby really liked it and he isn't much of a salad eater. I plan to serve this a lot this summer. Thanks for sharing, Coach Nicole. - 4/12/13

  • OK, so this salad is one that I would make and thoroughly enjoy. I am a salad lover too and every ingredient in this recipe is in my fridge or on my shelves. It is on my menu for today! Thanks Coach Nicole! - 7/1/11

  • This was absolutely delicious with just one tablespoon of balsamic viniagrette. I substituted unsalted pecans, feta and green grapes since that is what I had on hand. - 6/30/11

  • It's unfortunate that the Nutritional Information on the "print" page is less than is shown here!
    I'm not huge on nuts, so I may omit completely - have them as a snack instead.
    Thanks for sharing. - 6/30/11

  • I make a salad very similar to this all the time, using walnuts instead of pecans, and a sprinkle of crumbled blue cheese instead of the goat cheese, and about a tablespoon of craisins.. I will definitely try this one, as these are the kinds of salads I love!!

  • I don't like chickpeas or any kind of beans any suggestions for a substitute? I've never tried goat cheese. This will be a first for me. I would have used grilled chicken and left out the chick peas and cheese. - 6/30/11
