I like to serve this with pork tenderloin, but works just as well with any meal.

If I could, I would give this 10 stars! This is one of the best salads I have every eaten!! Did make a mistake and added feta cheese instead of blue, but the family said it didn't matter, that it was still outstanding. Served with #48683 ribs and what a meal. Good enough for a gourmet restaurant!!
