    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
    • 8 ounces mixed salad greens, rinsed,tough stems removed,and dried (baby spinach, arugula, red leaf lettuce, frisée, romaine)
    • 1/2 small walla walla sweet onion, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup crumbled oregon blue cheese

    Cherry Vinaigrette

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the cherry vinaigrette, pit and halve the cherries and set aside half of them to toss with the salad later.
    2. 2
      Put the remaining cherries in a food processor or blender with the vinegar and purée until smooth.
    3. 3
      Add the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste, and purée for another few seconds.
    4. 4
      Transfer the vinaigrette to a small bowl and set aside.
    5. 5
      (A blender will purée the cherries more finely than a food processor; if using the latter, you may want to strain out the bits of cherry skin after processing, pressing on the solids with the back of a rubber spatula to extract as much juice as possib) Fry the bacon pieces in a small skillet over medium-high heat until browned and crisp, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Scoop them onto paper towels to drain; set aside to cool.
    7. 7
      Put the salad greens in a salad bowl or other large bowl and scatter the onion and bacon over the top.
    8. 8
      Rewhisk the cherry vinaigrette to blend, and taste for seasoning, adding a bit more salt or pepper if needed.
    9. 9
      Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad, tossing to mix gently and evenly.
    10. 10
      Arrange the salad on 4 individual plates and sprinkle the blue cheese and remaining cherries evenly over each portion.
    11. 11
      Serve right away.
