This is a great salad Paula. Very light and healthy. I cut the gorgonzola to 3/4c. Since my family loves citrus I diced up two fresh oranges and used 4T of that juice in the dressing. Yummy. I believe the fresh oranges added a nice texture and more flavor than the mandarin. You could also substitute toasted pecans to really enhance the fresh orange flavor. Thanks for providing a recipe that can be very versatile!
Fantastic! My husband loves Gorgonzola but I admit that I do not. Yet I went ahead and made the salad fully expecting to hate it. The flavors balance each other in such a tremendously complimentary way that the strong Gorgonzola taste is not compromised but enhanced by the sweetness of the oranges and the nuttiness of the almonds. What I expected to hate will be a keeper in my summer salad repertoire. Thanks!
Excellent salad! Due to the oranges I served it for a Holiday Dinner Party but would be great during Summer too. Very easy to prepare. I did what others suggested and reduced the Gorgonzola cheese amount by 25%. It was fabulous!
My family and I thought this was just an average salad but that may be my fault. I did not have any gorgonzola cheese and just used feta. Also I thought the dressing was a little bland - needed more mandarin orange juice.
