Although an unusual combination this really is a very delicious salad. I got the recipe from a Junior League cookbook, called Bay Tables, put out by the Junior League of Mobile, Ala. The dressing is very pretty and tastes wonderful!

AMAZING! We loved this! This is truly a terrific salad! I used white vinegar instead of raspberry because I didn't have any raspberry, and used a little bit of red onion instead of shallot for the same reasons. Also used frozen blueberries--again, no fresh. Still, it was truly delicious and the bleu cheese especially added the most perfect layer of "tang" to the salad as a whole. LOVED it! Thanks for posting!
