"I liked the concept but found the dressing way too tart. The berries and pecans, though, were a nice combination."

"This recipe is a keeper! I did use Spring Mix, but other than that, I made the recipe as written. The dressing was very good. The blueberry/blue cheese combo was delicious."

"A very nice salad, but I found the dressing to be a bit too tart for my taste. I would use about half the vinegar the next time."

"I had to adjust the recipe to use what I had on hand: toasted sliced almonds instead of pecans and feta cheese instead of blue cheese; also honey mustard instead of Dijon in the dressing. Both my husband and I thought it was very good and would definitely make again! nice and refreshing."

"This salad is addicting! I had been looking for a recipe like this, and this is a keeper! The flavors blend very well. I used a mix of spinach & spring mix so my kids would eat it, too."
