Recipe by heather in Ont,
This salad is packed with flavour and great for the holiday. You may substitute dried cranberries, fresh pomegranate seeds, or thin Comice pear slices for the sun-dried tomatoes. This salad was such a hit with the family we ate it 3 nights in a row. I found this recipe in a Hallmark "Home for the Holidays" book. They call it "Sun-Dried Tomato, Walnut and Goat Cheese Salad", but DH said he has eaten the same salad in various places that he travels and it was called the Diva Salad.

This was a wonderful salad! I served with an herbed cheese millet casserole and roasted brussels sprouts and what a meal I had! I couldn't find my sun dried tomatoes, so used fresh. Thanks for a great dish! Made for the My Three Chefs event in the contests/events forum.
