The best part of this salad is the dressing. Its great on any salad and I prefer using big onions that are strong in flavour. Add a bit of goat cheese for extra flavour.
This dressing would make a rock taste good. When you make it, be sure to include all the crispy black bits and the caramelized juices in the bottom of the onion roasting pan. Instead of sherry and chicken broth, I used vegetable broth, a little bit of chevre, a dash of apple cider vinegar, and a dash of worcestershire sauce. Dressing was to die for. - 13 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a good dressing, but there are improvements that could be made to this recipe. First, 2 "large" onions is kind of vague. I think I ended up using a lot more onion than was intended, making the dressing kind of thick. It would be better to use lbs or cups as a measurement. Second, some measurement of salt and pepper should be listed, to adjust to taste, because it is easy to overlook. The dressing was really bland the first time I served it. - 09 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The combination of the walnuts & red onion along with the dressing is quite a nice surprize. With the added ease of packaged greens this recipe is very quick! - 22 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
