      We loved this. DH is not a huge fan of blue cheese but he really liked it on this salad. Great combination. I used a spring mix that included spinach for this since that was what I had. Other than that made as written. Thanks cookiedog.

      Delicious salad! I pretty much made it as the recipe suggested (I left out the onions) and added boiled eggs and homemade croutons - YUMS!

      LOVED this salad! I will be making this for our Thanksgiving feast. The only thing I did different was omit the sugar from the dressing as I think the cranberries added enough sweetness. Thanks for posting cookiedog!
