Made to recipe except used half watercress/half greens.  The simple, fresh salad was a good start to a more hearty meal: CL's bistro steak/red wine sauce & CL's lemon-garlic swiss chard.

Loved it--dressing was quick and easy, mild yet refreshing. Will make again and again.

Boring. I think the dressing was lacking something. Maybe make sure to use a really tasty orange. Even a grapefruit.

A good side salad for lunch or dinner as it is simple and not heavy in a particular flavor. Flavors were mild but pleasant.
