    A treat for the eyes and the palate! Beautiful colors and textures in the salad bowl. Delightful combination of textures and flavors on the tongue. Sweet from the dates, tart from the citrus, salty and sharp from the cheese, bitter fro the radicchio and crunchy from the nuts. Easy to assemble and much of it can be made ahead. A winner!

    Unusual combination of ingredients, really works. However, there's no way you can get 25 servings out of this-after eight servings nearly two thirds of it was gone, and with Thanksgiving dinner to follow we weren't serving large. Next time I'll triple the citrus and double the dates for better balance with the radicchio. And make sure to double or triple the dressing, otherwise it'll be dry. Everyone was saying great things about this salad and it's unexpected juxtaposition of ingredients.
