Very good. I made it for my husband. We ran out of salad greens and still had dressing so I got more greens and tomatoes so we could finish off the dressing. We will definitely make this again soon.
Awesome dressing and wonderful salad! Dressing was a snap to put together. Will definitely do again.
I loved the cilantro vinaigrette! I used gorgonzola instead of the mozzarella and this was absolutely delicious. A really nice side for a mexican meal or an Italian one.
