Tried this and the Chicken and Strawberries over mixed greens in the same week to compare.  This one came out on top.  Just likes all the flavors and textures in this one.

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!

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.

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.

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