This salad is soooo tasty and refreshing. It has wonderful textures and is so satisfying. I'm crazy about it. Have served it with salmon (recipe #352816) and that was one memorable meal! I love, love, love everything about this salad. Thank you, MsKittyKat.

Thanks Ms.KittyKat for posting this awesome salad from Gourmet Magazine from November 1996. It is one that I have always wanted to try and now. I did. It was fantastic. The apples and stilton were terrific. I substituted romaine and another mixed green in for the endive as my store was out. It worked perfectly. My guests loved it. We all loved it! ChefDLH!
