  1. I served this salad to guests and it was a big hit. I arranged the greens with the Gouda and tomatoes on top and drizzled the dressing over top to avoid drowning the salad.
  2. This salad made for a nice dinner on a "too hot to cook" night. My changes were to skip the soy sauce (personal preference) and to heat up some Louis Rich chicken breast strips and serve them on top of the salad to make it more of a meal. Add your favorite bread and you - Read more ...
  3. This recipe was tassttttyyyy! I added 2 avacodoes and that made a great contrast of flavor with the rest of ingredients. Will probably try adding cucumbers next time as well.
  4. Very easy and delicious - restaurant quality salad. I added pecans for a little extra flavor. I will definitely make this again.
  5. This salad was great! Im new at salads and this one was easy and delicious - my boyfriend and I cleaned our plates - I will definately be adding this to my recipe box.
  6. This is a great recipe. I added some sliced deli chicken and romain lettuce in addition to the mixed greens. Makes a nice low-carb meal. Thanks!
  7. I thought the flavors went very well together.I love the way the smoked gouda tasted in the salad. A little to much dressing the salad was drowning.
  8. This was OK. I probably won't make again. If you do make this I would add less soy sauce. It was overpowering.
  9. Very tasty and juicy. The gouda taste blends nicely with the dressing. I would recommend to put a hint of garlic. Enjoy
