    This was fantastic. I changed out the blue cheese for gorgonzola to make it a little more mild and used an Asian Sesame Vinagrette. - 6/29/09

    I highly recommend this salad! I substituted red gala apples and gorgonzola cheese. After all the ingredients were tossed together, it was incredibly flavorful. The apples really added to the colorful look of the salad. I had a fun time candying the walnuts and they added the perfect sweetness. - 5/16/11

    very good! I didn't use enough romaine. I really didn't know if I would like tomatoes and pairs together. I was good.
