This was a very tasty salad! It was a little bit sweet, but the cheese toned down the sweetness a bit. If you can't find Stilton cheese (or don't want to spend the extra money) use a nice blue cheese. Also, the dressing was delicious, but next time I will leave the sugar out of it. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Wonderful dressing! The sharp flavor of the cheese with the sweet dressing and tangy cranberries is wonderful. To make it more of a main dish, I think I will add some cold chicken breast next time but it is really perfect as written. THANKS for sharing.
