    We really enjoyed this, the flavours are both familiar and a bit different too. The orange blossom and fennel were surprisingly delicious. I just used a bag of supermarket mixed leaves and would do that again

    I'd made this at least once before, and it is delicious. Salads with lots fresh herbs are a trademark of O's, but it does take a bit of time to get them all picked into leaves. I used red butter lettuce instead of lollo rosso, and cut the Medjool dates into very thin lengthwise slices instead of quartering (and yes, maybe I'd add per lou_weez). Somehow it seemed a bit saltier than I remembered.

    This was a sensational salad that was a little bit different. I added a few more dates and next time might reduce the oranges by 1.

    We really enjoyed this, great combination of flavours.

    Found the flavor combination wonderful. Wasn't so sure about that when I put everything together, but then the flavors just melted together and I enjoyed a very intense and flavorful salad. Didn't use rocket, though, but romana and treviso because rocket was sold out. The oranges I use were very sweet, I think this would work great with not so sweet oranges as well (found it a little bit to sweet for a salad).

    Didn't live up to its promise. The combination of ingredients was worth another go, but the dressing didn't do it for me.
