Strawberry, Apple & Blue Cheese Summer Salad

Strawberry, Apple & Blue Cheese Summer Salad
Christopher Mohs

When summer is in full swing I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes that I can whip together without firing up the stove and adding more heat to an already hot apartment. This salad was literally a toss together from various ingredients I had in the fridge (I’m a fan of just grabbing whatever is on sale and using it creatively during the week).

So what’s in this summer salad?  Strawberries, apples, walnuts, blue cheese, and a simple vinaigrette over mesclun greens.  The recipe below is great for 2 people for a light dinner.


1/4 cup sliced Strawberries
1 apple sliced
1/4 cup rough chopped walnuts
4 oz. Crumbled Blue Cheese
1/2 bag Mesclun Salad Greens

2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper


For the vinaigrette, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients and drizzle with the vinaigrette.  Toss together until the salad is properly dressed and serve.

Yup – that’s it.  Doesn’t get any faster and easier than that does it.
