i had this at a wonderful restaurant in scottsdale, arizona called "Bloom". i came home and checked recipezaar and there it was. it is just as good as in the restaurant and i will make it many more times. i have shared it with friends as well. very good salad and so easy to make.

I made this for a luncheon and everyone wanted the recipe! I used raspberry vinegarette instead of the oil and vinegar dressing----I also used bleu cheese instead of athe feta.

Great recipe. I first made this for thanksgiving dinner and it was a huge hit. :) I have repeatedly done the salad time and time again, it always tastes fantastic!

we all loved it at thanksgiving. i only had romaine and green leaf lettuce. i put pomegranate seeds in it and made a raspberry vinaigrette.

Excellent! My non-salad-eating son had three huge helpings and then some! Will make again, thanks so much for posting.

It's interesting that the recipe origin is from a microbrewery - why do they always have the best food? For me, it was all about the pecans, since I had never tried carmelizing nuts before. To get it to work, I had to turn the heat up to medium. It seemed like it took longer than three minutes, but maybe it was just a long three minutes. :-) When you think they will never carmelize, it happens, and they are amazing!

I do LOVE this salad! The only change I made was to use balsamic vinegar instead of white vinegar. I thought it would give it a little smoother taste. It was So good I had three helpings! I'll be making this a lot. Thanks so much!
