I used feta cheese instead of blue since my DH doesn't like blue cheese. That's a major change, so I won't leave a rating . . . but I can only imagine it would be awesome with blue cheese (which I love!!). Thanks for sharing! :O)
This recipe was WONDERFUL! The only things I changed were adding a bit of sea salt and cayenne pepper to the dressing. We will be making this one for years to come, and so will every friend who tasted it at lunch today, and begged for the recipe. Thank you!
A superb combination of flavors. One of the best things I have gotten out of RecipeZaar is the inclination and encouragement to make my own salad dressings... because they are SO GOOD. This one especially. And the apples, blue cheese, pecans and baby lettuces I used could make it an entirely well-balanced meal on its own...especially in the summer. THANKS.
Really unusual and good recipe! Apples, blue cheese and greens smothered with a special maple pecan vinaigrette. Yum!
This is so worthy of a 5 star restaurant at home! I also had radiccio, mixed greens and spinach. My hubby loved it and so did I. Fantastic. I sprinkled crushed pecans all over the salad and did not puree in the viniagrette.Some members are allergic to tree nuts so by individual servings next time, I will have it to satisfy all needs. Thanks for posting. Indeed a winner!
What a small world, SusieQusie! I am from Tulsa, OK and frequently travel to Dallas. I first ate at 3 Forks in 1998 while working for Dowell Schlumberger and instantly fell in love. Thanks for sharing this recipe! The best salad I have ever eaten. Gourmet at home!
A real winner! We made a meal of it last night and it was wonderful. DH has requested that we have it again REAL soon! Thanks for sharing.
What an excellent salad! The vinaigrette was so delicious and I really liked it warm on the cool salad greens. This will go in my favorite salads cookbook to make again and again. It's definitely company worthy. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
