  1. Yummy. Sometimes I add cranberries. I never tried it with lemon juice just oil and white vinegar. I sometimes use FIG white balsamic! This is very versatile.
  2. Recipe Group Selection: 19 Nov. 2011. I really liked this salad but I LOVE bleu cheese. I made this in 2 individual bowls because I used feta cheese on my husbands (not a bleu cheese fan). I toasted the walnuts to bring out the flavor. The next time I make this I'll add dried cranberries - Read more ...
  3. Made for recipe group. This is an alright salad nothing wrong with it but nothing real special. I agree that the dressing left something to be desired... I would add a pinch of sugar I think. After my first couple of bites the dressing was a bit too intensely vinegary for me. Toasting the walnuts - Read more ...
  4. Made this for Recipe Group and apparently we're in the minority but this was pretty boring for us. Hubby said it was too vinegary and I thought the dressing could use some more flavor (besides the flavor of vinegar).

  7. I've been making a similar salad to this for several years and I've been asked to bring it to potlucks. I only use mixed greens and don't use the lemon juice. However I do had a thin sliced apple (fuji gala etc). This really adds to the flavor. I do season the balsamic dressing with - Read more ...
  8. Easy and quite good. Defintely a repeater. Use a good crumbled blue cheese. I added very thinly sliced red onion just a bit and thought it was a good option.
  9. Yummy Yummy Yummy! This salad is great and has so many possibilities. I have made it with grilled chicken and grilled steak sliced thinly - and both were sensational! Another option is shrimp or crab. Once I was out of bleu cheese and I used feta and it was equally as good. I will make - Read more ...
