Deliciously Sweet Salad with Maple, Nuts, Seeds, Blueberries, and Goat Cheese

"My mom began making this salad a few years ago and, as soon as I tried it, I just had to get the recipe. This is my version, but can be varied in many different ways because it's all about the dressing! So simple, yet so delicious that you are sure to get requests for the recipe whenever you make it! You can use pecans, almonds, or pine nuts in place of the walnuts."

We liked this very much, even the husband, who isn't very fond of vegetables in general and NEW ways of serving vegetables in particular. (He actually could not I.D. the blueberries at first--he...

This recipe is fantastic. The only changes I made, and they didn't really alter the recipe, were that I used raspberries instead of blueberries b/c I don't really care for blueberries, and I di...

Loved it! Used regular balsamic (had it), pancake syrup (had it), olive oil (you guessed it) & dressing was fantastic! Only thing I might do next time that would improve an already faultless sa...

Yummmy!! A crowd favorite at the bbq, so easy and quick. I used all ingredients, except traded pecans for walnuts. The dressing is simple but fantastic, try it the way it's listed. I bought e...

I have been looking for fantastic vinaigrette for a goat cheese salad and this one is it!! Absolutely delicious, and so easy too; an unexpected bonus. Thanks so much for this fabulous recipe!

This dressing curdled in the fridge after around a week. It was horribly disappointing, especially considering the price of maple syrup. Make it in small quantities so it isn't in the fridge f...

A fantastic combination of ingredients! I loved getting a bite with both the chewy cranberries and crunchy sunflower nuts. I used canola oil instead of grapeseed, but I wish I had used EVOO. I l...

This was sensational! I didn't have any sunflower seeds. I used olive oil instead of grapeseed. This was sweet but not overly so as the balsamic vinegar balances it out. My husband wouldn't even...
