  1. Interesting to see Clementine, feta and leaf salad. I used to do something like that years ago. I love fruit in my salad - apple, sultanas, satsumas, grapes etc. If used sparingly I thibnk they are great addition but Jo prefers salad without.

    Sparkloing cranberries sound yummy! But then so do most of the recipe headings.

  2. We both love fruit in salad too. In addition to the ones you mentioned, dried apricots and pear (soaked in lemon juice first) also work really well.
