The perfect salad for a warm summer's day. Mixed greens are tossed with walnuts, blue cheese, lemon zest, apple and avocado in a citrusy mandarin dressing.
I love this salad. My company loved this salad. The only thing i did differently was not to juice the mandarin oranges. I used canned mandarins and purreed them in my hand chopper. Tasted delicious in the salad. Also added 1 tsp of honey to the dressing. Great flavour combo's in this salad. - 02 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this is a good recipe although i baked my walnuts w/ brown sugar and grand marnier for 15 minutes at 200 until crunchy.. fantastic - 03 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This salad was good, but it didn't taste like I thought it would. I made 3 changes. 1. I added salt & pepper to the dressing to give it a bit more flavor. 2. I also used canned mandarin oranges instead of nectarines. 3. Instead of 1/2 a lemon, I used the juice of a whole lemon. All of the tastes together was very interesting. I paired it with a very spicy chicken dish I prepared. It was a nice cool salad paired with a spicy dish. I will probably make again. - 04 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
