You know, now that I read pat's recipe, I remember I do usually add cheese to my salad too. I don't think it was in the recipe you had, but it really does add something extra; so give it a try. I also prefer the red wine vinegar. I have added different types of nuts too for variations... sliced almonds are one of my favorites.
