Very good! My friend and I made this for our New Year's Eve dinner and everyone raved! We added cranberries as well for color. Turned out great, would make again.
A restaurant in Memphis serves a salad like this, which I love. This was good, too, but too much trouble for a simple salad! Use balsamic or raspberry vinagrette instead. It's good with uncookec pears, too. Does need to be presented on individual plates.
A few restaurants nearby make salads like this and it's one of my favorites. This version is very good as well...I loved the dressing! Very nice presentation as well. Thx!!
Lot of onion flavor in this
MMMMMMMMMMM............This sounds just like a recipe that I use. The only difference is that I toast the walnuts in a skillet and I have not tried it with port wine.........sounds good though! The combination of toasted walnuts and gorgonzola cheese make this a winner. If you like the taste of blue cheese you will love this. It is also really easy to make.
We liked this a great deal and thought it went very well with quiche lorraine. Used regular blue cheese since that was all that I had. Looked very pretty as well.
We tried with blackberry wine and was very tasty. Although I used a soft yellow sweet pear and I think it would have been better with a firm green sour pear. Will most likely make again.
I made this salad with the White Wine Vinegrette recipe on this site and the pairing was wonderful! So easy and good. I think I have a new favorite salad!
