"The best part of this salad is the dressing. Its great on any salad and I prefer using big yellow onions that are strong in flavor. Add a bit of goat cheese for extra flavor." — Barrett

onions, sliced into wedges
sherry wine vinegar
mixed salad greens
toasted chopped walnuts
red onion, thinly sliced
This dressing would make a rock taste good. When you make it, be sure to include all the crispy black bits and the caramelized juices in the bottom of the onion roasting pan. Instead of sherry and chicken broth, I used vegetable broth, a little bit of chevre, a dash of apple cider vinegar, and a dash of worcestershire sauce. Dressing was to die for.
Not a winner. Like someone else said, the dressing is basically a chicken gravy, served over salad. On paper it looks like a good idea, but in practice it just didn't work. Sorry, Barrett! On the upside, I think the dressing would taste fabulous served warm over grilled chicken, and it was easy to make.
The combination of the walnuts & red onion along with the dressing is quite a nice surprize. With the added ease of packaged greens this recipe is very quick!
This is a good dressing, but there are improvements that could be made to this recipe. First, 2 "large" onions is kind of vague. I think I ended up using a lot more onion than was intended, making the dressing kind of thick. It would be better to use lbs or cups as a measurement. Second, some measurement of salt and pepper should be listed, to adjust to taste, because it is easy to overlook. The dressing was really bland the first time I served it.
Great.. kids hated it but I loved it. Served it on young spinach too.. even better.
Amazing salad and very original dressing with a great strong flavor! Even though it takes more than an hour to prepare, I totally recommend it!
I made this for dinner with a roasted chicken this Saturday night and I really liked it. I didn't toast the walnuts but it was great. I halved the recipe and the dressing was a bit thick but otherwise impressive!
The roasted onion dressing has a thick consistency with a sweet tang. A welcome change from the creamy or vinegary dressings usually used on salads. Everyone who has tried this recipe loves it.
