"This is a great salad as a meal with grilled chicken or by itself. This has been a winner with our friends and family. Who can pass up a salad with three cheeses?" — amylrowe

1 large head
leaf lettuce - rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces
cubed Swiss cheese
crumbled feta cheese
shredded Parmesan cheese
toasted pecan pieces
white balsamic vinegar
freshly ground black pepper
VERY easy and very good! I used white wine vinegar since I couldn't find white balsamic, and it was still great. I would love to try it with the balsamic next time. This recipe gives you LOTS of cheese and pecans- I will probably not use quite as much next time. You'll also have plenty of leftover dressing. I received several compliments on this pretty and yummy salad!
I was a bit dissapointed with this salad. However, if some tweaks were made the salad would be good. Even with it being a "three cheese green salad", it was a bit too much cheese for me, and I love cheese. The nuts added a great balance and crunch to the salad, and the dressing was good, but it was a bit bitter for my liking. Be prepared to tweak this recipe to your liking.
Excellent Salad. I took it to a potluck where it was a huge it. Now, all my friends are asking me when I'll be serving my "Restaurant" salad again! I don't like Swiss or Feta, so I substituted crumbled cheddar and shredded colby jack cheeses. I found the white balsamic vinegar near all the salad dressings in my grocery store. :)
This was a great salad! Found the white balsalmic in the gourmet section of my grocery store. (used Mont Jack cheese instead of Swiss) Yum!
This salad was amazing! I made it for Easter dinner for 15 people and everyone ate it and thoroughly enjoyed!! I switched out the cubed Swiss for cubed Monterey Jack and added a little bit of sugar to the dressing just to tone down the slight bitterness. The salad came out perfect, was super easy, and a super hit.
I really enjoyed this, my mom loved it! However, I did make some changes which is why I gave it 4 stars. Like others, I agree the dressing proportions were off. I cut the pepper down alot and only made half the dressing, which was the perfect amount. Subbed Monteray Jack for swiss, because thats what I had. Also added some thinly sliced red onion and green apple. YUM! Quick and refreshing. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing.
This salad is so tasty, I make it all the time and its a hit with BBQ's
We used a dark balsamic vinegar and it turned out fine. Also, recipe doesn't mention tomatoes but picture shows them.
