I made this for a luncheon and it was a great choice! The flavors are a great blend and was amazing. I served the blue cheese on the side for those that don't care for blue cheese. The dressing is just perfect...not too heavy and let the flavors come through. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Read More

Flavorful & hearty! Will definitely add this to my salad rotation. I made a couple of modifications to the dressing: - cut the sugar out completely I felt the cranberries sugared almonds and apples were sweet enough - reduced the oil to 2 Tbsp. since the avocado cheese and nuts also blend in as oil/fat components when tossed I'm not a fan of blue cheese so I used chevre goat cheese; red onion and baby field greens also worked great. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

This is a huge favorite in our family. You can add cooked and shredded chicken to make it an entire luncheon meal. Read More

There was more dressing than the ratio of lettuce:dressing I prefer but I added some baby spinach & it was perfect. I took it to a baby shower & got lots of compliments. Easy & delicious. Read More

Best salad I've ever made. Everyone raved about it at my work's potluck and they want me to make it again next week! Don't substitute the dressing. It's easy to make and tastes perfect with the salad. Read More
