Recipe by lynne989

This was a popular salad served at the Marshall Field's restaurants. It makes a nice main dish for a summertime picnic because it is mayo free. Also, this is an excellent main course for a luncheon. Your family and friends will enjoy the unique combination of blueberries and rosemary in this dish.

I'm trying to lose weight, so I served this salad without the blue cheese, and on a bed of baby spinach leaves. It was excellent! So colorful, unique and good for you!
