We loved this salad & I will make it again. I cut the recipe in half since there was just 2 of us, but there was enough dressing for 3 or maybe 4 if you don't like it too wet. Use a little less sesame because it stood out a bit. I used bartlet pears in place of the olives, just because I had some in the fridge. I will try the olives next time. Makes a nice presentation for guests. My fiancee was impressed, said "looks like a salad served at a fine restuarant."
