    Super good. Made it with blackberries and blueberries. Dinner guests cleaned it up. I think it would be good for a luncheon with grilled chicken as a main dish.

    This gets 4 stars for flavor, two for instructions on making the candied walnuts. I have some experience melting sugar, and should have heeded the inner warning that stirring the sugar (as directed) with a cold metal spoon would make the melted sugar re-crystallize into hard, unmeltable lumps. After attempting to stir in the walnuts I added a little water to re-dissolve and then let the water evaporate, stirring occasionally. It worked, but all of this took up way too much time. I did not have apple cider or juice for the dressing so I used some CL Easy Herb Vinaigrette that I had on hand, tossing it with fresh spinach and basil and topping the dressed greens with halved pitted dark cherries. I also left the walnuts whole and increased to 1/4 cup per serving for added MUFA. We ate this with a glass of wine and CL Leek and Asparagus strata muffins. This is a good salad but the candying step should involve a wooden spoon or dissolving the sugar in a little water first.

    Followed the recipe exactly, using raspberries and blueberries, and served w/ CL's Flatbread with Pancetta & Asparagus. Very, very nice light summer meal. My family raved about it.

    Made my own Herb Salad Mix using dill as the herb and cherries for the fruit, and paired it with Pork Medallions with Port Wine-Dried Cherry Pan Sauce. This was over-the-top good!!!
