"I really didn't like the dressing. I went and bought a poppy seed dressing that went excellent with it. Also, I left out the turkey and just had it as a side salad. Oh, and I mixed spinach leaves with the spring greens. Delicious."

"I made this salad for Thanksgiving, as a side dish (without the cubed turkey). It is a delicious salad. Pomegranate in a salad adds a delightful pop of flavor in your mouth. I did not add the bleu cheese and it was still a delicious salad. Definitely a keeper! I am making it again for Christmas."
