My neighbor (misscrys79) brought hubby and I a plate of this salad this evening and it was very good. I especially liked the vinaigrette on it. Had a nice zip to it....something different than your everyday dressing. I love that she used maple syrup in place of the sugar and that she used walnut oil. That gave it depth. It was beautiful salad, something you would want to set in front of company. She also put Maple Balsamic Pecans Les Fougeres on it. Yummy! Thanks for posting this.

I went blueberry picking today and wanted something to go with the salmon we picked up from the local fish ladies, and this salad fit the bill. I used gorgonzola for the cheese, left out the chicken and used maple glazed pecans. For the dressing, I had to substitute red onion for the shallot (there weren't any shallots at the store!!!), I used maple syrup in place of the sugar and used 1/2 c. walnut oil and pureed the dressing with my immersion blender. My DH loved the dressing. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Wow, very good! Left out the radicchio, used feta instead of blue cheese, and a deli rotisserie chicken made this really fast. Threw the vinaigrette ingredients into the blender for a smooth dressing. Also reduced the amounts of shallot and salt: about 1/2 a shallot and only 1/4 teaspoon salt was just fine.

This salad is a delicious combination of ingredients and was quick and easy to put together. Very light and fresh-tasting. Made for ZWT6.

When I chose this wonderful recipe as an extra during ZWT 4, it was a lucky find! I prepared it as directed with only the two following exceptions: canola instead of vegetable oil and minus the radicchio. It was substantial enough to satisfy my dh as his dinner and a treat to our palates at the same time. I am sure we will repeat this one, with only one slight deviation; next time I will reduce the shallot. I don't know if mine was very strong or if it's typical, but it is a conversation killer. LOL Thanks for this great find! Lori of the Cookin' Cats team ZWT 4
