I really enjoyed this simple salad - I used butter lettuce and spinach with colby/montery jack cheese. An easy healthy salad which we will be having again and again.

Out of this world! I served this with watercress, a mix of sprong baby greens, and a crumbled white stilton that had apple and pear in it ( from Costco- I highly recommend - yummo). My guests raved - this was a perfect compliment to the meal I served and I WILL make it again! Thanks for a great recipe!

This is a delightful and easy salad. I used a combination of endive and arugula. I did add a pinch of oregano to the dressing and shredded parmesan reggiano for the cheese.

Lovely simple salad. Used camenbert cheese. I really liked the flavor of the cheese and the ground pepper. Thanks!

A simple and flavorful salad makes this a delicious starter. I used watercress and paired it with a mild soft goat cheese. The peppery green did work well as a foil for the soft and creamy cheese. Found the dressing a little bland and ended up tossing in a little black pepper and rubbing a garlic clove over the bowl for a little more zip. Thanks Mama.

I never ate watercress before and bought a bunch for this recipe. It was different and had a little bite but i think that's the point. Loved the dressing, i like light dressings but most have vinegar and i'm not a big vinegar fan, but i liked the lemon juice instead! Thanks mama for an interesting salad for lunch!!

This was a great combination of flavors. I didn't have any cress so I used bagged salad of mixed baby greens instead. A keeper.

Well, used up the last of this year's fresh watercress from the garden for this recipe. This has some serious "pep" to it due to the super fresh watercress I had. For extra effect, I added a few slices of habaneros ("habos") because tempting fate can be fun! I'm awake now! (Could also sub mild Mexican queso fresco if you cannot find brie.) Thanks for sharing. cg ;)
