Expert Tips

Several restaurants offer a salad similar to this recipe; this version is easy to make at home.

Roasted salted nuts are wonderful in poultry salads; try almonds or cashews here.

Garnish the salad platter with whole strawberries.

Blue cheese is a nice contrast to rich walnuts, and sweet dressing and strawberries. Offer a small bowl of blue cheese on the side to sprinkle on the salad for the blue cheese lovers.
