    Hello Lia, Usually my kids avoid salads, but after looking at your recipe I am sure they will enjoy it, it looks so mouth-watery. Will try it today, as I was looking for different ways to make salad with different taste and I think this is the perfect salad recipe I was searching for, I will try it at dinner if that works for them, will surely add it my list.
