Love this!!! Used walnuts instead of pecans (what I had) and at the last minute, decided that I felt more like a Raspberry-walnut vinaigrette instead, so that's what I used~~~YUM!!!

loved it!!! I doubled everything.. and perhaps eyeballed the amount of greens a bit.. but it was actually WAY way more dressing than needed. Left out just a bit of the honey.. but it turned out perfect. I will make this one again... yum.

I'm glad I used my first salad from the garden for your recipe!
It was really delicious. I prepared the sauce as described. For the salad I used walnuts (from one tree near our house) and instead of gorgonzola some sheep cheese and some slices parmigiano!
Yummi, we all liked it very much and we say together: THANKS!
