"This is awesome! I used Feta cheese and it went perfect with dressing, which by the way really makes this dish. I can't wait to have company and present this salad. It is beautiful as well as tasty."

"Delicious salad! I made myself a very large salad for one using the ingredients but my own measurements. I substituted blue cheese for the goat cheese and I don't use a lot of dressing, but those were the only changes I made. I counted up the actual calories for what I consumed and got 416, which is probably a little high but is around the calorie count for similar salads. Maybe the calories are for the entire recipe and not per serving? Good salad; I will make it again."

"I'm with the last reviewer here: "1 serving equals 794 calories, 55 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 113 mg cholesterol, 615 mg sodium, 42 g carbohydrate, 8 g fiber, 37 g protein. 800 calories?

That aside, if you have left over Tri-tip roast this is a very good 'all in' dinner salad."

"I will be making this tonight for dinner but 794 calories ~ could this be a mistake?"
