  1. Superb! I printed this recipe out over a year ago and have been meaning to make it since then. I made the recipe as stated, using spinach leaves as my salad greens. I cut the cheese about 1/4" thick and grilled it on my barbecue. It stuck to the grill in some spots, maybe I will try broiling it next time. The presentation is beautiful and colorful. We ate it right away per the instructions. Thanks for posting, PinkCherryBlossom, this one's a winner!
