Blueberry Romaine Salad

I love to bring this delicious salad to school gatherings. The homemade dressing couldn't be simpler, so I whip it up in advance and just give it a quick toss with the other ingredients when I get to any event. —Kris Bristol, Charlotte, Michigan

    Excellent salad - loved the dressing and the combination of blueberries and cashews and Swiss cheese. Dressing made much more than needed, so either save some for another salad, or make a larger salad. Will definitely be making this one often.

    So easy to make and is the perfect summer meal with some grilled chicken on top. Omitted the cheese. I put the onions on the salad rather than in the dressing.

    Fabulous salad. I added some cooked chicken to mine. Used no cheese and used chopped pecans . The fresh dressing is a perfect choice. I reduced the sugar to just 2 scant Tablespoons. Will definitely make this one again . VFE

    When I first saw this recipe, I found the ingredients intriguing (that's what drew me to it). I decided to try it and my husband and cannot get enough of this salad - one of the best combination of flavors we have ever tasted. I make this 2-3 per month and it's great in the summer!

    SO GOOD! This is a wonderful salad for summer. Due to on hand ingredients, I subbed walnuts for cashews, and olive oil for canola. I also tossed in some sliced strawberries with my blueberries. The dressing and salad ingredients are a perfect refreshing match. I will definitely make this again. One thing, it does get a bit soggy fast, so don't dress the salad until you are ready to eat. We had it last night with grilled steak and grilled corn on the cob, I made another salad for lunch today. Mmmm.
