This salad looks great. I think it is such a good idea to layer it up like this. It makes eating the salad fun. The other day I ate a 'salad in a jar' at a restaurant. It was fun digging down into the layers to see what I would find next. I felt like a kid with a lucky packet. This is a wonderful idea for talking point when you take it along to a cookout too!

This is a fascinating recipe. Never seen a salad presented like this before and I think it would be such a great centre piece to a dinner party. It would be interesting to try some a whole range of colours. Think how pretty it would look with red cabbage, heritage carrots or even radishes. Can anyone give me advice - how well does this keep?

Why is this SO confusing to some folks? I set up a "Recipies" file on my computer. After viewing a recipe which I'd like to save, I just "Send" it to my "Recipe File". Nothing hard about that!

"remove recipe" is giving you the option to remove a recipe you have already saved.....so if you want to save a recipe and "remove recipe" comes up.....just leave it alone as you already have it saved!

If it says "Remove Recipe", it means you have already saved it at some time

I clicked the "Remove Recipe" tab and then the "Save Recipe" tab came up. When I clicked on that one, it said the recipe had been added to my recipe box. I guess you just have to trick it sometimes!

I tried what you said (a different browser) and it still comes up with remove recipe instead of save recipe.

dlotvedt 3943613: It works OK on our end. Perhaps try closing and re-opening your browser or refreshing it, and try again. Thanks! Blair, Editor, RecipeLion.com

Why does it say remove recipe when I want to save it???

Looks good and would make a lovely presentation at any gathering.

sounds good

There is no place to put this in my recipe box.
