A 'sweetish' dressing finishes this salad off perfectly.

This is a wonderful salad! And it's January, for heaven's sake. :-). I first met satsumas, my very first exposure to seedless tangerines, in the New Orleans farmer's market in 1960 or '61. I was, oh. 9 or 10 years old. So I have an emotional attachment to satsumas. My later affection for dried fruits (other than the omnipresent apricots and prunes of my childhood) elevated cranberries. Toasting almonds multiplies the flavor about 200%. And "my" blue cheese (very favorite) is Point Reyes. In any case, this is a 5-star winter salad. The photo is pre-dressing. I used a raspberry vinaigrette but when I took a large version for lunch the next day, I used a blush wine vinaigrette (Brianna's) which I preferred.
