MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 4, 2011

Loved, loved, loved this salad. I could not stop eating it. Kept going back for more. These ingredients are a great combination. Even if you think you won't like it, I bet you will. Can't wait to make it again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 5, 2010

This salad was gobbled up by both groups it was served to. We used a fork to mash the blue cheese into small "crumbles" instead of just breaking it up. Everyone loved it and no one said I don't like blue cheese! One person wanted the whole salad bowl as her serving. Sharing it with family & friends.
