This was a love salad, great flavor and texture
Very flavorful & great texture. Even without any protein (except for the cheese), this is quite filling - I would call this comfort food salad! I added yellow pepper cut into chunks & substituted blue cheese crumbles for the feta.

This is such a beautiful and delicately tasty salad. My husband loved it and asked for it again today. I almost was going to use olive oil instead of Walnut oil for dressing. Wow, so glad I didn’t, the Walnut oil is beautiful. Better than best Bay Area restaurant salad I have had. Thank you!

Wonderful but should replace pears with a sweet apple its much better

Beautiful. Full of flavour and wonderful, didn’t need the salad but added a bit extra quinoa.

Superb! I mixed kale & spinach for my greens and used Anjou pears instead of the Asian! My guests loved it!

Turned out great. Did add the quinoa. Served it with grilled pork loin. Delicious recipe. Will make it again.

To make it easier, but beets already roasted (or canned), drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

I enjoyed this salad. It has a nice combination of flavours with a balance of sweet and tangy. Best to prepare ahead, would be good for a BBQ etc
