Vinaigrette Salad

This salad recipe has been tweaked over the years from a recipe I talked out of MIke Schlotman years ago. That man can make you a meal to die for and I fell in love with his version at a BBQ at his place and had to have the recipe. Changes and variations abound with family preference over the years.

My pic above is a version w/o mandarin oranges as hubby isn’t a fan of them in this salad AND I was also serving my Honey Vanilla Rainbow Fruit Salad at this meal, which included mandarin oranges. But… I personally think the mandarin oranges MAKE this salad so will strongly recommend you add them!

TIPS: Try subbing in Feta Cheese instead of Bleu Cheese. Or switch out the Champagne Vinaigrette for a French Vinaigrette or Raspberry Vinaigrette.
