Made it exactly to the recipe - it made a pretty and tasty first course for a Christmas-season dinner party.
Lovely & light dressing, made to recipe. Dressed greens, plated, then topped with seeds & nuts. Served before dinner, the tiniest bit of goat cheese would be a nice addition without too many extra calories! Would also be great as an after-supper salad, before dessert or cheese.
This salad got rave reviews from my family! I am allergic to pecans so I substituted toasted almonds and I added a sprinkling of gorganzola cheese - terrific!! Add grilled chicken for a fabuouls main dish!
I've brought this salad to several potlucks and it has been a huge hit. I also add crumbled goat cheese.
The dressing was fantastic. We used arugula and added blue cheese, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes. We found the champagne vinegar at Whole Foods.
