    I didn't love this. It was OK but somehow the combination of flavors didn't really work for me. I only had green grapes and my cheese was a fairly strong Neal's Yard cheddar but I don't think even with those changes this would be worth a repeat for me.

    As others have said, a very nice salad and perfect for fall. My cheddar was rather strong (I used an aged English cheddar) and I actually think I would have preferred something a bit milder. But overall great salad.

    I am not a huge cauliflower fan, but this was absolutely wonderful. I served it for a barbecue, and like Breadcrumbs, everyone wanted the recipe- the consensus favorite of my guests were the bits of toasted hazelnuts and the cheddar cheese (I used a sharp white). I made a double batch and had some leftover, but while still tasty, the dressing gets really strong overnight. It made eating the salad a second day almost like eating a pickle. ETA: July 26, 2015- I have made this for a few potlucks at this point, and everyone wants the recipe.

    p. 178 - Even the word delicious somehow seems inadequate to describe this unique and flavour-packed salad. I think the fact that the combination of ingredients is so unusual really adds to the overall appeal of this dish, it creates a totally new taste-sensation in your mouth. The toasty crunchiness of the roasted hazelnuts, the fresh, juicy flavour bursts from the grapes, the sweetness of the honey and the tang of the Dijon and vinegar, somehow this all comes together to produce something truly sensational. This is a salad I’ll be serving when I entertain for years to come. Everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe. Thanks to those who wholeheartedly endorsed this on the “Cookbooks” thread, you were absolutely right!! Photos here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1012789?commentId=9556919#9556919

    Great mix of flavours and textures. I enjoyed this more than I had expected and loved that each mouthful had a different "pop" of flavour.
