    This salad was amazing! For the dressing, I substituted agave nectar for the honey to keep it vegan and added a tsp of Dijon mustard. I will definitely make this again.

    This recipe is wonderful! I've had it twice already. The dressing is so tangy and sweet. I love that all the recipes on the detox don't make you feel deprived of flavor. I've enjoyed every recipe and I am week two of the detox so far...

    The dressing for this salad is great. We devoured the dish for lunch and loved it.
