About this recipe: A delicious salad that is bursting with flavour. This dish is made with mixed greens, oranges, red onions, walnuts, citrus dressing and crumbled Gorgonzola cheese.
Light, refreshing and perfect for a summer salad.... The citrus vinaigrette was a nice touch - will definitely make again. Update - made this the 2nd time and used walnut oil in place of the vegetable oil. Using the walnut oil made all the difference, moved this salad from wonderful to outstanding!!! - 23 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This salad is to die for! After making it a few times I have found what works best for us. I added a bit less OJ (1/4 cup less, be sure to use fresh squeezed), half the sugar and I use brown not white, and added half a clove of crushed garlic to give it a kick. Added some salt and a bit more Dijon (1TBS) as well. I also used mandarin oranges in a pinch they will work as well. Sometimes I use pecans and chevre cheese in place of walnuts and gorgonzola. Both are excellent. Heaven. - 16 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The best part of this recipe is the dressing. The salad ingredients can be modified to suit one's taste. I was looking for an arugula salad recipe that tasted like a salad I had at a local restaurant. With a few substitutes in toppings, this salad was very similar in flavor, but a lot less expensive than the restaurant version. I like to sometimes use sliced fresh pears instead of oranges, omit the onions, use glazed pecans instead of walnuts, and use goat cheese instead of the Gorgonzola. However, I use the dressing as is. Excellent! - 10 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
