    For you information, vegans definitely do not eat honey. Let me explain: We consider it cruel as the bees make it for their own dietary needs, that is to feed their hives and sustain their young. The production of honey from a single bee over its entire lifetime is only one-twelfth of a teaspoon! So each tablespoon of honey represents the workload of thirty six bees!! Furthermore, to obtain the honey, the bees are smoked out of their hives, which goes straight into their eyes and respiratory system. Bees are killed in this process. Please remove the vegan label or adjust your recipe accordingly.  -  16 Oct 2009


    Used different ingredients. Delicious! I didn't use the oranges or green onion. Instead I tossed it with dried cranberries, almonds and feta. This was quick, easy, and delicious!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I have been making a similar salad for years and will suggest that you might like to add some toasted Walnuts or toasted slivered Almonds (for crunch). This is an EXCELLENT salad! Jeanne A.  -  29 Sep 2008
