    This is a casually-brilliant recipe. I had wondered how restaurants got so much flavor in salads that were lightly-dressed. This is it! I tossed lettuce in the dressing and put everything else on top, like a restaurant salad. Thank you!

    This is very different and very good. I halved the recipe so I could use up some blue cheese I had and left out the pecans. Otherwise followed the recipe, using a whole grain spicy mustard that I made (recipe #37992). Thanks for sharing!
