      Hi Julie. Thank you so much! I’m so glad you love it! It’s a family favorite! -Amy

  2. You could use Splenda in the dressing for less calories too.

  3. @Julie…leave the oil out of the dressing and substitute rice vinegar for white wine vinegar. You can get by with less sugar with a milder vinegar. If the sugar is still an issue, use honey! Hope that helps.

  4. Ran this through Weight Watchers build a recipe and it has 103 points for the entire amount! How many servings is it? And how many servings does the dressing make? Am going to try to modify it so I can eat it, right now I could have about 1/2 cup, and I know I would want more!
    More low fat, low carb, high in protein and fiber recipes, please!

  5. Amy, you were here in New London and I was at your cooking show. You shared this recipe and the Divine Chicken Divan and the Berry Tifle recipes. My son was going out of town on a business trip and I served these three to him on Friday night. Oh my gosh!! He said it was the best meal he had in a long time. He loved this salad and so did my husband. In fact they loved everything, I didn’t make the Berry Trifle but made the Chocolate Berry Trifle and it was a hit too. Thanks for coming to New London and sharing.
