I hate to rate this because I had to make a number of changes; I had trouble getting all of the ingredients. Here goes anyway. The dressing was very good; a little sweet; a little tangy. The grocery store was out of cucumbers ! so I substituted zucchini. I use a half chopped tomato because cherry tomatoes were ridiculously expensive, as was a 4 oz package of smoked salmon. I substituted chicken of the sea salmon in a pouch 2 pouches. It worked fine, but I think the recipe would benefit from the smokey flavor of smoked salmon. The great thing about this recipe was that I got to use fresh spinach and basil from my garden! Yum! I will try the recipe again when the price of cherry tomatoes comes down and my budget allows for the smoked salmon. Thanks!
