I’m not big on salads as I usually will refer to them as rabbit food.  However, I do enjoy them if they are filled with delicious surprises inside, like this one.

I made this on Saturday afternoon and I know you will just be in love with this. 

It’s easy, it’s elegant and it’s definitely a crowd pleaser.

½ lb. baby spinach, washed

1 bosc pear, diced

1 granny smith apple, diced

½ cup of fresh plump blueberries, washed

½ cup of good Stilton cheese, crumbled


½ cup of extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons of pear infused white balsamic vinegar (you can use plain white balsamic if you can’t find pear infused)

pinch of salt

few grinds of fresh pepper

In a measuring cup (or small bowl) add your olive oil, salt and pepper.   Whisk in your vinegar slowly and whisk for about 30 seconds, set aside.

In a large salad bowl, all your spinach, apple, pear, blueberries and Stilton.  Pour your dressing on top and toss with your clean hands.

Voila.  You’re friends will love you for this one!
