    It looks like the dressing is being double counted under the nutritional breakdown. There are 39 calories/serving for "olive oil" and then another 23 calories/serving for "oil and vinegar salad dressing". Not a big dicrepancy, but it does throw off the total caloric info and total fat. - 8/14/12

    This is def a keeper. Did not have balsmic so I used rice vinegar, and also tossed in some dried craisins. I made this for me only and hope that the dressing will keep for a day or two. - 3/10/12

  • Something I didn't know .. if your on High Blood presure meds you can't/shouldn't eat Grapefruit.. it cancels out the meds in the liver.... soooooo... I switched out the grapefruit with orange slices... just as good... (look up Grapefruite and High Blood presure med on Google it will explain it) - 11/28/12

    Any suggestions to add proteins (vegetarian or fish)? This sounds like an amazing salad but its protein amount is lower than what I am suppose to take.
