    Great summer salad. Quick & easy to put together.

    I picked up a roasted turkey breast from the Safeway deli and took the skin off to substitute for the chicken breast. I also used mixed greens as that is what I had on hand. What a delightful combination of flavors! I wouldn't hesitate to serve this salad to guests but we made it a meal by adding a slice of sourdough bread. It is a great recipe on a hot summer's night when you don't feel like cooking. Feta would make an easy substitution for the blue cheese if you don't like BC (but the BC was excellent!). Definitely a keeper recipe. :-)

    This is a delicious salad of the caliber you eat in restaurants. Great on a summer night or for entertaining.

    I am so skeptical anytime I try to serve a salad for dinner, but I thought this was a wonderful recipe. I probably added more cheese and cashews than the recipe called for but I'm sure it would have been good if I had followed the exact measurements too. I served it with bread sticks. It's a nice new way to enjoy strawberry season!!

    this was delicious! in place of the cashews, I substituted roasted peanuts, which paired very well. enjoy!

    I was looking for a way to enjoy strawberry season and this salad was a great way to do so. I packed the leftovers into containers for lunch for a couple of days and thought that it held up relatively well.

    This was a good salad; a nice change with fresh fruit. The dressing, on the other hand, is AMAZING! The tangy blue cheese, the crunchy/salty cashews, and the sweet strawberries, the dressing really does lend a hand in bringing them all together. Definitely make the toasted bread so you can soak up the dressing from the plate!

    Brought this to a party and it was a hit! Feta can be subbed for blue cheese. Be sure not to mix ingredients and dressing together until immediately before serving. I will make this one again.

    Lovely summer dinner - even my husband who isn't a fan of dinner salads liked this one. I didn't have cashews on hand, so substituted toasted pistachios. They worked well & next time I may try toasted pecans.

    This is a great dinner salad. I thought the blue cheese might be a little overwhelming, so I substituted goat cheese and it was great. Perfect salad for the summer.

    I have made this many times and my family loves it. I saute chicken breasts in a little butter and salt and pepper rather than buying a rotissery chicken. I put the greens on a big platter and then top with all the ingredients except the dressing, which I let the diners put on themselves. It looks impressive and it tastes great!

    just wondering why this is a light recipe with over 16 grams of fat?

    Awesome! Even my 5 and 7 year olds loved it.

    This salad was amazing! I switched out the bleu cheese with feta and it was a perfect combination... Loved the dressing as well! Can't wait to serve this to the fiance!

    Delicious and filling summer salad; will def. make again.

    I was really looking forward to this and it just wasn't good. The only changes I made to the recipe were using a pomegranate red wine vinegar and grilled chicken instead of store-bought rotisserie, The flavors did not come together at all. Something about the combination of the arugula, the strawberries, and the blue cheese was very unpleasant although I can't quite pinpoint exactly what made it so offensive to my palate. I definitely will not make this again.

  • shankoene Posted: 06/01/13

    As many others did, we subbed feta for the blue cheese. I would definitely serve this to dinner guests.

    This has a great balance of flavors. I make it every year when strawberries are in season. It's a nice dish to make for guests.

    this is a really great, fresh, fast salad that can be made at home but tastes like something you'd get in a restaurant! my fiance and i don't like blue cheese so we substituted reduced fat feta and used slivered almonds instead of cashews. soooo good!

  • Cupcake16 Posted: 08/03/14

    Absolutely delicious! Looking forward to having it again tomorrow for lunch! This is definitely a keeper!
