When Nancy P. made this salad for a luncheon at work (can you tell I spent a large portion of my life at work?), we thought we'd died and gone to heaven. The dressing is wonderful. To me, it tastes similiar to raspberry dressing, but better. It's the balsamic vinegar. It's really a simple salad that has a big taste. BTW. . .Have you ever tried balsamic vinegar with fresh strawberries? Delicious!
