  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 68.76. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 68.76) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
I knew this recipe would be good when I prepared to make it, but I didn't realize it would be SCRUMPTIOUS! The Dijon mustard is absolutely essential, and gives this salad that je ne sais quoi that will keep people guessing. It was so delightful to eat! We paired this salad with zucchini lentil fritters that called for a lemony yogurt dipping sauce (Very simple: 3/4 cup whole milk yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 2 Tbsp lemon juice). We still had salad and yogurt sauce leftover after the fritters were eaten, so we tossed the yogurt into our second helping of salad. BOOM! Whole new level! We enjoyed it like a dessert!
