    DELICIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL. MY ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT WAS THE SMOKED TROUT. I GOT IT IN A PACKAGE AT COSTCO AND IT JUST WASN'T VERY SMOKEY SO IF YOU LIKE SMOKEY, GET YOUR FISH ELSEWHERE OR SMOKE YOUR OWN.

    Good solid recipe with potential. The good: the flavors of this salad all go well together. The strong flavor of the smoked trout needs to cranberries to lighten it up. The areas for improvement: the dressing is barely-there, with too much broth. Couldn't really taste the raspberry vinegar, which was a shame. I think the dressing in particular, and the salad overall, would be better with a little more oil. Deconstructed, this salad was great. But, it didn't quite come together, somehow.

    My father didn't care for it too much. I liked it but found the flavors did not blend very well together. Perhaps adding avocado might help? Something was needed to help the flavors compliment each other better.
