Quite tasty and refreshing. The tomato and almond dressing was very flavorful, and worked deliciously well with this salad.

Used red bell pepper instead of green pepper, because that was what I had on hand. It actually added a bit nice color and sweetness as well. Adding apple and toasted walnuts certainly made the salad achieve a tastier level.

A great and easy side dish that goes well with any summer BBQ!
