This was the best salad! I made it for 2 as a meal and changed a couple things. I made 1/3 of the Buttermilk and Mayo Mixture and 1/4 cup of Blue Cheese 1/8 tsp Seasoning for the dressing. Left all the veg the same and it was more than enough dressing for us. Also I Chopped the Salad to mix the dressing in. I Grilled a small Filet steak and sliced that for the top. Only used one bacon slice per person and 2 Tbsp Pecans and Blue Cheese per person. Also I made the Sweet Balsamic Glaze to drizzle on top; 1/2 Cup Balsamic and 2 Tbsp Brown sugar boil on the stove just until it coats the back of spoon. (This will be enough for many salads.)<br/>Thank you so much for posting! :)
Oh my seasoned cook, this was sooooo good, I think, it was better than Outbacks. My hubby never eats salad, and he ate this and commented that it was great. I followed directions except I candied the pecans with some brown sugar. I drizzled with We Olives Pineapple White Balsamic just before I added your outstanding blue cheese dressing. Update. I’m still making your salad and have used We Olives 100 year old balsamic instead of the pineapple and it also goes over so well. Thank you again.
