Cranberry, Glazed Walnut, Orange, Avocado, and Blue Cheese Salad

Rated as 4.91 out of 5 Stars

"I first made this salad for my family's Thanksgiving dinner several years ago as a starter, and it was a big hit. This recipe was inspired after I had some pear and walnut salad at a restaurant. Since I'm a busy professional woman and don't have lots of time to cook, I wanted to make something quick and easy, yet tasty, using premade ingredients you can find at regular grocery stores."

A wonderful, easy salad. I made this for Christmas dinner and it was gone. I left out the avocado and it was fine without it. I used Brianna's Blush Wine Vinagrette dressing, which is one of ...

I submitted this recipe that called for Raspberry Vinaigrette salad dressing but after it was kitchen tested and approved, it was changed to Cranberry Vinaigrette dressing by All Recipes.
