"Tangy and sweet, the odd combination of foods in this salad tantalize the tastebuds! Try pineapple chunks and ranch dressing for another delicious combination."

Not everyone liked the salad because of the quite original flavors, but those of us who loved blue cheese liked this salad tremendously!! I'm a big blue cheese lover, so this was the perfect salad for me. In the future, I'm planning on making a few modifications for those of us who don't like blue cheese, such as:
-Intead of blue cheese dressing, use Thousand Island Dressing. (A creamy kind.) and I plan to replace the cheese with crumbled feta. Also, for all the blue cheese lovers, I would recommend using crumbled blue cheese. Thanks for sharing! :)
This was pretty good but it needed something like nuts or bacon bits too. The blue cheese was a bit overpowering though and seemed to dominate the dish. I used ranch dressing and added blue cheese chunks. I didn't like this enough to make it again though, sorry.
THanks for all the good reviews! I came home from school starved one day and my husband was making dinner. He said 'Go ahead and fix you a salad' and I just started adding ingredients and came up with this really good combo. But I love blue cheese and if you aren't a blue cheese lover, it might not be your thing. Also, I have always added fruit to my salads for some reason---I love the pineapple or canned peaches and Ranch combo, and that might be an aquired taste, too. (:
This salad is very yummy. I love the sweetness of the grapes against the tang of the blue cheese! I added some tomatos from my garden because I love the combintation of tomato & blue cheese also.
What's not to love? Easy and yummy! Thanks
YUMMY! One of my favorite salads! One tiny thing...it needs some texture so don't forget the sunflower seeds! I use ranch but I am going to try blue cheese now. THANKS for the great idea!~ :)
Thanks for a great recipe. I loved the blue cheese. Excellent will make often. Also, thanks for posting a photo for my stuffed mushrooms!
This was a nice change from an ordinary tossed salad! The flavor combination was great!
