I got this recipe years ago from Byerly's grocery store in MN when they were having a promo on Mahon cheese (a spanish cheese). If you can't get Mahon, you can use manchego or a mild provolone (or any semi-soft cheese). This salad is fresh and pretty, and I serve it at Christmas (or Thanksgiving) because of its light, fruity flavor and beautiful color. Goes perfect with turkey or ham. You can buy a small container of the macadamia nuts already toasted (so less work!) It's easy, not too expensive, the ingredients aren't too exotic and you can make the dressing ahead of time. Best to put the salad together right before serving.
