    These make 2 REALLY BIG salads. Are they really supposed to be for just 2 salads? This is delicious though!

    • Neely

      Grace – Yep. Since it’s mostly veggies, it’s still not excessively calorie dense.

  2. Amy B

    I just can’t get myself to eat sardines. What do you suggest as an alternative in this salad?

    • Neely

      Amy B – Canned salmon or tuna is a great alternative.

  3. Traci L

    I was just wondering about the squash, we chop it up raw right? You don’t cook it?
    Thanks :)

    • Neely

      Traci L – That’s correct. Just chop it up raw.

    This is an awesome salad. I love it!
    It could be for two people if this was their main course.
