Wonderful Summer Salad! I will make this recipe again, especially for a make ahead summer gathering. Simply delicious. I received wonderful compliments. I don't think anyone would be disappointed by this recipe. Only change, I didn't use tomatoes.

Fantastic! A wonderful combo and so different from the typical strawberry with spinach or greens recipes. This is going to be a repeat in our household! I made a fourth recipe to test it and used tomatillos instead of green tomatoes. That worked quite well. I would not omit them, as I think their inclusion sets this recipe apart from the ordinary.

I absolutely LOVE this salad! I had to leave out the nectarines and green tomato, because they were unavailable, but the salad was still wonderful. I loved the salad dressing as is, although I don't think the poppy seeds are necessary. I will definitely make this again. DO NOT leave out the fresh basil!

This salad is fantastic! I roasted my own spiced pecans and washed and cut my own lettuce, but other than that, made it exactly as stated. I did think that the dressing was a bit too sweet. Next time I will use less sugar and try grapefruit juice instead of lemon juice for a more 'Florida' taste.

A definite summer salad keeper! I usually don't make anything that has not been reviewed yet but I'm so glad that I did - my entire family LOVED this salad. A great combination of sweet & salty, fresh greens, fruits, terrific light dressing and easy to put together! The only changes I made - no green tomatoes at the market, so I used red. I also substituted fat-free feta. Delicious! Salad & fruit lovers will not be disappointed.
