I am in love with this recipe. I made some changes that I think compliment its simple style: First I too used canned mandarin oranges and added about 2 tbsp of that liquid to the dressing which sort of cut through the vinegar nicely. I also added some chopped avocado crumbled blue cheese and smokehouse almonds to the salad - totally divine combinations! I also used spring mix as did another reviewer. For the dressing I substituted Raspberry vingegar with some Fig Vinegar I had in the house and that worked perfectly. Thanks so much! I've already made this salad twice this week - and it's only Wednesday.:-) Read More

Sorry. I really was dissapointed with this one after all the great reviews. Although I love all of the ingredients separately I thought the taste of all of them combined was awful. Read More

Delicious and refreshing salad. I tweaked it a little bit according to what I had on hand. I used baby spinach instead of endive green onion instead of red onion and raspberry balsamic vinegar instead of raspberry vinegar. I also added some sliced grilled chicken breast to make it a main dish salad and sprinkled sliced almonds over the top. It was a great light supper for a hot summer day. Read More

I loved this recipe and passed it on to my sister who has now made it twice for dinner parties. We changed two things. We use raspberry BALSAMIC vinegar instead of plain raspberry vinegar and added a few sprinkles of feta cheese. It got rave reviews when both of us made it! BRAVO!!! Read More

This is my favorite salad ever and I am super picky. I took the advice and used mandarin oranges and mixed the left over juice (instead of the the oj) with the raspberry vinagrette sugar and olive oil. I also added candied pecans gorgonzola and cherry tomatoes. There is nothing better than this combo. Read More

I was assigned to be the "Salad Guy" at a potluck BBQ that I co-hosted last night. I went online to find a different kind of salad other than a bland green one and came across this one. After serving it last night it was an instant hit! Everyone was asking me for the recipe so I gave them the website address instead. The only thing I varied was that I used 1/4 of the red onion instead of a whole one and everyone still thought it was a main ingredient if not part of the salad's name. Read More

We liked this-the flavors of the endive combined with sweet oranges balanced each other nicely! Read More

This excellent! I served it too some leary folks and everyone loved it. I also used only half the onion because of the strong taste of red onion. I also added toasted walnuts for some extra protein. Great summer salad! Read More

Good salad. I added some raspberry vinegarette to cut down on the tanginess. Great with some feta cheese on top. Read More
