One of the best recipes I have ever made from this site! This was a huge success at our dinner party last night. I used Gorgonzola (husband doesn't like blue cheese). Doubled the garlic because we are big fans and used spring mix for Arugula because the market was out of just Arugula. Thanks Morgan for sharing my favorite new recipe!
I made this with the ingredients listed. Instead of putting the nuts carrots and oil in the oven I lightly greased a sheet and did just the carrots. I whisked the oil with the vinegar honey garlic and S&P. I added the cooled carrots with the nuts and fruit and then tossed it adding the lettace at serving time. This is different flavor with a pretty presentation. I will make again and again!
This is delicious as a sidedish, more so than a salad. I made EXACTLY as the recipe stated (for all you purists out there!), and I will make it again, but next time there are several minor things I'd do differently. #1 - I'd cut back on the oil, or perhaps omit the oil & spray the carrots with a spritz or two of Pam cooking spray before roasting (they get a little soggy with all that oil). #2 - increase the slivered almonds and the dried cranberries -- at least 1/2 cup of cranberries (which I soaked in hot water for a few minutes & then drained, to soften them). #3 - Decrease the blue cheese crumbles -- the flavor was a little over-powering! #4. Omit the argula or substitute baby spinach leaves. We ate it mixed with the greens at first, but then decided we liked it better as just a carrot/cranberry/almond sidedish, served at room temperature. Thanks for the recipe Morgan Nowicki. Very good!
If I could give this 7 stars I would. This is so over the top yummy! Just from reading the recipe I knew it would be good so I made a huge batch for a potluck. It evaporated it was gone so fast. Only thing I did different is since I tripled the recipe I only doubled the garlic. But still soooooooo yummy. Thank you for sharing.
I love this recipe! I have to say it kind of annoys me when people review after completely changing the original recipe... that said I did make one addition. Because I have a huge amount of beets in the garden I added small diced beets to the roasting pan with the diagonally sliced carrots etc. It was actually a good combination and a nice color addition as well. I'll def make this salad again! In the future I'll double or even triple it... so good the next day!
Absolutely fabulous salad! The carrots are just the right balance of sweet and savory. The addition of blue cheese and cranberries makes it even more perfect and the almonds give the perfect crunch. The carrots also make a great side dish by themselves without the greens and cranberries. I can't rave enough about this recipe!
Delicious! This would be great served with Christmas dinner as the dried cranberries remind me of that time of the year. Only changes were the use of regular lettuce and baby carrots simply because I had them on hand. The sweet from the carrots tart from the dried cranberries and tang from the blue cheese blend well together no need for a vinaigrette of any sort. Simple and full of flavour! We'll be making this again for sure.
So delicious. I did make some changes since I used what I already had in the house. Added roasted beets used pecans instead of almonds spinach instead of arugula and goat cheese instead of blue cheese!
