    This salad was soooo yummy! Such a random mix of ingredients, yet they all tasted so well together. The crushed red pepper adds a perfect little kick. I will definitely make this one again!!!

    All of these ingredients combined to make the most interesting, pretty, and fresh tasting salad! I made the recipe as written, but perhaps next time would reduce the lemon juice just a bit. Other than that, this is a keeper.

    Great recipe. I toasted the pistachios and that brought out their flavor even more. Made it for Valentines day and roasted the beets the day before, (saved the greens for veggies), and pre-preped the ingredients the night before for quick assembly after church. It was great. I had to sub a Bosc pear but it was lovely and picked up the beet color and presented a beautiful Valentine salad. Fairly easy, especially when I could assemble it at the last minute. In retrospect, I could have cut out little heart-shaped beet slices.
