    This wasn't the quickest recipe to make, but my husband and I both loved it... the sweetness of the cranberries next to the sour taste of the olives... delicious combo. I would definately make again!

    My husband and I loved this recipe! I changed a few things: I omitted the orange rind, and substituted soy nuts for the pine nuts. This was an excellent full meal salad! My husband asked for me to make it again exactly the same way. If you don't have 4-6 people to eat the entire salad, I would suggest holding off on tossing the croutons into the salad, and only mix into the individual servings. The croutons would get soggy in the leftover salad.

    Yummy, I really like this salad. The seasoning on the chicken is great! Although, it doesn't seem to make enough dressing to fully coat the leaves. Maybe try mixing the dressing with leaves before adding the bread cubes?

    I have made over 100 dishes from cooking light and this is my husbands favorite! I also really liked it. Great flavors and textures. Definitely a repeater!

    This is a really satisfying salad. I left out the ground fennel and it still worked. The kalamata and cranberry combo is really good.

    The dressing on this salad is AMAZING! My fiancee doesn't like vegetables, but he loved this salad so I will definitely be making this again.
