Very good, simple salad that is easy to make with what you have on hand. I did not have honey roasted peanuts, so I used some cocktail peanuts and heated some sugar in a saucepan. I added a bit of water and the peanuts and cooked them for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. They turned out a little sticky as I got too much water I think, but once they were in the salad, they added a nice, sweet crunch. I used feta but am looking forward to trying some other cheeses. Thanks for sharing!

Really refreshing! I did cut back on the sugar by about half, as my homemade pomegranate balsamic dressing is pretty sweet to begin with. I had Napa cabbage to use up and smoked Swiss cheese, which balanced nicely with the sweet dressing and salty peanuts. I really enjoyed this salad! Thanks for sharing your creation, Sarah! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :D

So this is a sweet salad (as the title does say!) and I love a sweet salad. If you typically enjoy the sweetness of honey mustard and french dressings this is a salad for you. I used Havarti cheese and threw together some balsamic dressing. Great flavors. I usually go for dried cranberries and sunflower seeds on my salad so this was a nice change of pace. The combination of nuts, dried fruit, and sweet dressing is yummy!

This was too sweet for us and I would just cut out the sugar next time (plenty of sweetness happening from the balsamic, honey-roasted peanuts and raisins). Used greek kasseri for the white cheese. We all liked! Thanks.

What a lot of flavor in very few ingredients. I used a smoked gouda cheese and romaine lettuce. Made Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing Low-Carb for the vinaigrette and loved this simple salad. Thanks Sarah in New York for a new keeper. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

Good, good for my 25 year diet, but need more motivation to exercise. The most I get is running past my tree of bees as I get out of my car. Made for ZWT #6 ZINGO.
