I added some purple basil to the spinach salad and didn't have blue cheese, so added Parmesan. Also was out of pecans, so I toasted some pine nuts. The dressing is great - substituted splenda instead of sugar. Looks pretty and tastes great!

Sorry - Made this recipe as stated. Much too sour/tart/bitter? for my family's taste. I added more sugar, and while it was better, we just didn't care for it.

This was great! With fresh walleye, the salad was subtle and delicious. With red meat (venison) the salad was outstanding. I changed it up a little and used feta since I really don't like blue cheese. I also substituted real maple syrup for the sugar. I used a bag of lettuce because, as my sister says, I'm the jiffy mom. The dressing was really quite delicious with these ingredients.

We loved this salad. I added red onion. The dressing is light and refreshing. I did not have any Dijon mustard so I made my own. Thanks for this yummy salad recipe.

Great recipe! The dressing really makes the salad. I substitued the blue cheese with feta cheese and everyone liked it. I made it a second time and used blueberry-infused craisons instead of the blueberries. It was even better and is a nice alternative when you can't get fresh blueberries.

I tried this recipe tonight at the last minute because I had all the ingredients. If your blueberries are not super sweet, add a little more sugar to the dressing. You can really eyeball the ingredients for this salad and you can't miss. Very good !

Rave reviews! I didn't have candied pecans - so just toasted them with a little salt.

This salad was a hit for pot-luck party! A pound of fresh spinach makes a large portion. I was looking for a recipe to use blueberries in my freezer from last season, and they worked very well in this salad. Can't wait to try with fresh blueberries in a couple of weeks.
