Super fun salad. I had some fun with it, so here we go. I was out of pears (there is no doubt they would be fab in here) so added red seedless grapes (which were awesome) and fresh peaches (not so great in here). Then I put feta on half of the salad and blue cheese on the other half. LOVED the blue cheese side. Don't forget the craisins, as I felt they truly made the salad special. This is definitely fancy enough for a dinner party and then give away small bottles of the homemade vinegar as thank you gifts!!! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE. THANKS! I made this yet again and served to the neighbors at a BBQ. . .everyone loved it. You say it needs something for color and I keep thinking about this. . .how about shredded red cabbage????
I have found a new favorite salad this summer! Great combination of flavors, I loved the sweetness of grapes and pears offset by the tartness of the dried cranberries. I used spinach instead of lettuce and left out the raddichio and onion, otherwise made as stated. Next time I may try White Stilton or Wensleydale with blueberries instead of the feta. I used your Blueberry Pomegranate Infused Red Wine Vinegar for the vinegar. Thanks for posting! Made for 123 Hits.
A nice recipe that uses the sweet-and-tart taste of the dried cranberries to its full potential. I did not have the patience to make my own blueberry-pomegranate vinegar, so I used a blackberry vinegar that I bought at the local deli. This is best served after an hours rest in the fridge, so the tastes have had some time to infuse.
