Absolutely delicious and perfect for summer -- I made some minor changes by skipping the walnuts and adding blackberries and also the amounts of spinach and fruit (except for the pears) where probably off a tad. Thanks for sharing this keeper salad which we will be having again and again this summer!
We loved the combination of the fruits and nuts with the spinach. The flavors compliment each other so well. I made the dressing to go on the salad however; no one in the family cared for it, so we did not add it to the salad. With all the other flavors it surly wasn't missed. And it was a beautiful addition to our Easter dinner. I will definitely be making this salad again next weekend, because my oldest DD requested it for the sleepover. Thanks for sharing this very tasty and healthy salad Debby. Made and reviewed for Spring PAC 2010
Excellent. Made it as written, except I added just a little bit of Dijon Mustard to the dressing. Loved it. . .thanks for posting! Made for Veggie Swap Feb 2010.
Pears and blue cheese pair so well; this is a great use of the contest ingredients! I baked the walnuts in the toaster until they were extra toasted (almost, but not burned) and they were the hit ofthe salad. I took leftovers for lunch to work, topped with grilled chicken which was great.
