mixed baby greens

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy! This salad is great and has so many possibilities. I have made it with grilled chicken and grilled steak sliced thinly - and both were sensational! Another option is shrimp or crab. Once I was out of bleu cheese and I used feta and it was equally as good. I will make this again and again! 5 big stars.
Wonderful recipe...love bleu cheese but don't like all the fat of a creamy dressing...this works perfectly!! Have already used over and over.
Easy and quite good. Defintely a repeater. Use a good crumbled blue cheese. I added very thinly sliced red onion, just a bit and thought it was a good option.
I've been making a similar salad to this for several years and I've been asked to bring it to potlucks. I only use mixed greens, and don't use the lemon juice. However, I do had a thin sliced apple (fuji, gala, etc). This really adds to the flavor. I do season the balsamic dressing with a little salt & pepper. EXCELENT!!!
Recipe Group selection of 11/19/11. I just made a test run as lunch for DD and me and we loved this, so it will be on our Thanksgiving menu. I used white balsamic vinegar so there was no muddy look to the salad thjat you get with dark balsamic. The walnuts play off the bleu cheese wonderfully - thanks for a great new recipe.
Made for recipe group. This is an alright salad, nothing wrong with it, but nothing real special. I agree that the dressing left something to be desired... I would add a pinch of sugar, I think. After my first couple of bites, the dressing was a bit too intensely vinegary for me. Toasting the walnuts would be an improvement too. Still this is fine as a basic salad and I'll probably make it again, adjusting the dressing a little.
Yummy. Sometimes I add cranberries. I never tried it with lemon juice, just oil and white vinegar. I sometimes use FIG white balsamic!
This is very versatile.
Recipe Group Selection: 19, Nov. 2011. I really liked this salad, but I LOVE bleu cheese. I made this in 2 individual bowls because I used feta cheese on my husbands (not a bleu cheese fan). I toasted the walnuts to bring out the flavor. The next time I make this I'll add dried cranberries, green onion and maybe a little tomato. We both enjoyed the dressing - it is a little on the tart side. Thought this was a good selection this week.
