      This was an awesome salad, yum yum! I did make some adjustments according to our taste though: half as many macadamias (whole), twice as much greens (baby greens), skipped the corn, and added 1/4 oz. per person crumbled blue cheese. The blue cheese fit this recipe like a glove, and balances the flavors nicely. One adjustment to make to the directions is in the blood orange juice. You won't get much juice out as you are slicing the sections. You will need to have half a blood orange dedicated to squeeze for each tablespoon of juice you desire. DH says "you can make it for company". We'll definitely be making it again!
