This salad is fantastic! It is my husband's favourite meal. I am not a huge blue cheese fan, but it works for me in this salad. I would recommend this to anyone. - 29 Sep 2008


I agree the dressing is very yummy! And it looks very pretty because of the pink colour of the red wine vinegar. - 23 Aug 2009


Used different ingredients. This is a great salad that is great as a main dish! We don't like bell peppers or olives, so I left them out and added 500g of blanched asparagus. I also used a ribeye steak. I will make this often!! The dressing is yummy! - 29 Sep 2008
