    I came to the website to check the recipe after seeing it in the magazine also.. the picture looks Yummy. But this is the wrong recipe.. although the salad sounds absolutely delicious and I will be making soon.

    I saw this in the magazine - The picture doesn't match the recipe (doesn't match it here, or in the magazine). I know this doesn't count as a review, but there's no "there's a problem with this recipe" button.
