Great Flavor Great dressing and arugula mix. However there are no cling-free nectarines where I live - trying to slice these resulted in bruised and mushed nectarine chunks nothing like the pretty photo. Next time I will make this with cling-free peaches for easy slicing! Cons: Not possible to slice nectarines! Read More

Unfortunately the nectrarines weren't ripe so they weren't too tasty with the salad but I'll definitely try the salad again when they are more in season. We absolutely LOVE the dressing! I made the dressing today with apples feta and walnuts. Cons: Meat/ingredients can be expensive Read More
