So amazing!!! We used goat cheese instead because it’s what we had on hand and the salad was so yummy. My husband who rarely likes tomatoes had seconds!
This salad is so very good! Has anyone tried putting pasta in it? Seems like it would work...
Is it better to mix the salad with the dressing ahead of time to marinate or mi's the dressing when ready to serve? I have all my ingredients and can't wait to taste!
Yum! My husband loves this salad.
Made this for a BBQ & it was a big hit!!
This was so yummy! A wonderful summer salad change; the gorgonzola cheese and avocado gave it a creamy rich flavor.
The most wonderful salad for any season! It goes with anything, and is so easy to throw together (assuming you've got that pesky ripe avocado). It has been uniformly rated as outstanding by everyone who has had it here, and I've shared this recipe with a ton of people.
So easy and so delicious!
Incredible salad! It makes a lot for 2 people so it didn't stand up several days after I made it, but I will definitely make it again only next time I'll make sure I have help eating it. I substitued feta cheese for the gorgonzola because I hate gorgonzola. I also added fresh corn and cut back on the basil. Absolutely delicious & healthy.
A colleague served this at a company lunch. Really fresh and tasty. Will serve it over the 4th weekend at a BBQ. Think I will use the suggestion of feta for the cheese.
As the originator of this recipe, I used feta in mine, so you don't need to worry about it melting like Gorgonzola. Also, like the first comment, you should mix the dressing first and set aside. I use only 1 tsp. of mustard, and only 1/2 cup basil. When in season, I sometimes add fresh corn. Glad you all like it!
I took this to a salad potluck and got rave reviews. My gorgonzola didn't crumble, though, because while I was doing the prep it softened into goo. So I lumped it as best I could into the salad. I also goofed and made the dressing with 2 Tbsp each of lemon juice and Dijon mustard instead of 2 tsp. By the time the salad was served the cheese had melted into the dressing. It was still the big winner of the night, with many requests for the recipe. Next time I'll chill the cheese so it will crumble, but keep the extra lemon juice and mustard.
This was a great summer salad for dinner and very, very tasty. Would be great with cooked cut up chicken off the grill in it. Amazing taste with the Dijon mustard and Gargonzola cheese. Easy to make, I will make it again and is perfect for patio dinners or lunch..!!
Delicious, easy and attractive. Perfect for summer with grilled fish. Equally good without the gorgonzola. Mix the dressing ingredients first before tossing and you're set.
