    I use a non-fat raspberry vinagrette dressing for a much lower fat count and sometime swap out almonds for pine nuts or I crumble in a low-fat feta cheese. Yum! - 4/16/08

    I cut down the olive oil to 2 T and use balsamic vinegar. I also thinly slice red onion rings instead of the chopped onion. Some fat is good fat. - 4/16/08

    Love this salad. I used bottled fat free poppy seed dressing for ease of use. It makes a great salad. Sometimes, I add chicken or other fruit, or even salmon, but it is delicious - 4/16/08
