    I forgot to thicken the sauce, but my family thoroughly enjoyed this anyway. My hubby (my pickiest eater) said "you hit the ball out of the park on this one". 5 stars

    I make this recipe several times a year. I like to add a can of mandarin oranges, drained. My daughter has to have a few banana slices. For a pretty presentation, serve in dessert glasses with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Shave lime peel on top.

    This is a delicious salad. I halved the salad for just the two of us using one apple, one pear, and one clump of grapes. I halved the dressing and it was perfect. This salad is a real winner. I added a little fresh lime zest and it tasted so good. We will have this again and again.Volunteer Field Editor

    Very Good. I doubled the recipe but instead of using all lime juice I used 1/2 lime and 1/2 orange pineapple. It was excellent.
