This was definitely a good starting point for this salad, however, I agree with *pink* and will try using a touch of sugar or a sweeter vinegar next time as the dressing was too tart for our taste. On the other hand, the pecans were a great recipe in itself and easy enough to make for a quick snack! :) Thanks for sharing!
This was a good and different salad. I have never had this at outback, so I cant compare. I loved the candied pecans. The pecans, blue cheese, and vinaigrette paired very well together. The only thing I wish I would of had was some nice creamy fresh blue cheese. I only had the crumbled that comes in the tubs, which are never as good as the fresh chunks you get. So next time I make this I will for sure use the fresh creamy kind, because it really would make the salad divine! I did think the vinaigrette needed some sugar added. Other than that I went by the recipe. I will also buy next time the chow mein noodles for salad instead of making pieces from angel hair pasta. It takes away an extra step. Thanks for the recipe!
Made this for Thanksgiving last year...and it has been requested again this year. It was a hit.
This was spot on! I can never quickly choose between their caesar salad or this one. Now I will be able to make this regularly for the family. Thanks for sharing the secret!
