Very good and very simple. I love arugula, it has such a unique taste, and it paired well with the blue cheese. The walnuts were an especially nice touch to give it extra, unexpected flavor and texture. Plus it looks really sophisticated! I will definitely be making this again.
This one is a keeper! DH loved everything about it! Thanks for sharing.
Rita, I loved this salad! So few ingredients results in so many different flavors, it was fabulous. I used some Newman's Organic Herb Mix in place of the arugula and kept everything else the same. Also, I used your Caramelized Onions #51649 recipe for the onions. I never realized walnuts and pine nuts go so well together! Just fabulous, thanks so much for posting this :)
