Patriotic Tossed Salad|
This fruity salad is a mixture of bright reds and blues and an even brighter combination of flavors. If desired, the blue cheese can be omitted for a vegan salad, or one that better suits those that are not fans of the strongly flavored cheese. For a great main dish salad, add 2 1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey or chicken.
1/4 cup blueberry or raspberry vinegar
1/4 cup blueberry chutney
1/4 cup minced red onion
2/3 cup canola oil
8 cups washed and torn salad greens
3 cups blueberries
2 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1 cup toasted almonds
In a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, chutney, onion, salt, and pepper until smooth. Slowly add the oil, whisking constantly, until it is all incorporated evenly. Set the dressing aside. Toss the greens, blueberries, strawberries, and blue cheese in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss well to coat evenly. Add the almonds and serve immediately.
