Just Like Dewey's Candied Walnut and Grape Salad

Just Like Dewey's Candied Walnut and Grape Salad created by Lou L.

Perfect for special occasions, but simple enough to make every night. Has a lovely citrus basil vinaigrette that goes well with this salad as well as others. Taste's just like the salad they serve at Dewey's Pizza in Cincinnati, Ohio.

  • Place baby romaine leaves in a salad bowl and top with sliced grapes, candied nuts and crumbled gorgonzola (if making your own candied nuts do this step first so they have a moment to cool).
  • Whisk together orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, basil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Serve dressing with salad.

    This is actually not the recipe that Dewey's uses (I used to work there and made it) it's similar but also very different just fyi. First, you're missing pine nuts also instead of black pepper use red pepper flakes and instead of orange juice use a whole peeled orange and a whole peeled lime. there is NO balsamic vinegar added to it. That will not only change the color but also the taste. They don't add garlic.

    Love this Salad! The only thing I changed was instead of grapes I put dried Cranberries and will try the grapes next time for sure! I also added Grilled Chicken to make a meal of it. Thanks for posting!

    Fabulous! I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. I don't even like balsamic vinegar, yet somehow this sounded appealing and boy am I glad I gave it a try. I even sent my husband on a special trip to the store to get gorgonzola, but forgot to put it on the salad!! It was wonderful anyway! Will definitely be making this again. :)
