VERY easy and very good! I used white wine vinegar since I couldn't find white balsamic and it was still great. I would love to try it with the balsamic next time. This recipe gives you LOTS of cheese and pecans- I will probably not use quite as much next time. You'll also have plenty of leftover dressing. I received several compliments on this pretty and yummy salad!
Excellent Salad. I took it to a potluck where it was a huge it. Now all my friends are asking me when I'll be serving my "Restaurant" salad again! I don't like Swiss or Feta so I substituted crumbled cheddar and shredded colby jack cheeses. I found the white balsamic vinegar near all the salad dressings in my grocery store.:)
This salad was amazing! I made it for Easter dinner for 15 people and everyone ate it and thoroughly enjoyed!! I switched out the cubed Swiss for cubed Monterey Jack and added a little bit of sugar to the dressing just to tone down the slight bitterness. The salad came out perfect was super easy and a super hit.
I really enjoyed this my mom loved it! However I did make some changes which is why I gave it 4 stars. Like others I agree the dressing proportions were off. I cut the pepper down alot and only made half the dressing which was the perfect amount. Subbed Monteray Jack for swiss because thats what I had. Also added some thinly sliced red onion and green apple. YUM! Quick and refreshing. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing.
The large amount of dressing this recipe makes is not an issue you just don't add it all to the salad at once! After I tossed the salad I added just enough dressing to coat lightly and refridgerated the rest for the next day! I would not decrease the spices at all it was fine the way it was. Delicious salad!

I was a bit dissapointed with this salad. However if some tweaks were made the salad would be good. Even with it being a "three cheese green salad" it was a bit too much cheese for me and I love cheese. The nuts added a great balance and crunch to the salad and the dressing was good but it was a bit bitter for my liking. Be prepared to tweak this recipe to your liking.
