Salad: Blue Cheese, Toasted Walnuts and Sweetness

Ok, you can choose to either buy the pre-made salad mix, which is found next to the cesare salad mix, or you can buy everything and make this. I may end up opting for the other, because it's so easy and cost might be irrelevant in all reality. I'm not even sure if they have this eact mix, but you'll find something similar to this. But here's the recipe anyway, for your grandkids...

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Blue Cheese, crumbled
  • Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 T. butter, melted
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • Raspberry Vinegarette

1. Dry roast walnuts in pan until you can smell their loveliness; remove and let cool.
2. Toss greens with cheese and dried fruit, and a little dressing (or you can let everyone add the dressing themselves).
3. Toss nuts with melted butter, sugar and salt.
4. Top salad with nuts and eat it, pinky up! Serve with a sliced baguette and Bree cheese (heck, if we're going all out, go all out!). Any crusty bread will do...
