Here’s a beautiful salad to serve up this weekend made with springy greens, red strawberries, sweet dates and creamy blue cheese, all tossed with a lemon honey mustard vinaigrette. Folks, when I made this salad Hitesh and I finished all of it! Its really really good. Give it try!
Dates and bleu cheese a fabulous combo
What makes this salad so delicious is the dates and blue cheese. Such a winning combination these two ingredients are. Dates are really sweet and blue cheese adds that pungent tangy salty flavor to offset that sweetness, making for a lovely combination. Then tossed with a lemony honey mustard vinaigrette, this salad feels very indulgent but really its so healthy. With lush strawberries in season, these too go well with blue cheese🍓,
